but this doesn't have to be a release aimed at users and - for
projects with plenty of existing users - it's probably best that it
isn't. what's checked is the form, not the code - all the stupid nit
picking little things that make a difference. it can take a while to
get them all right, which can be really frustrating if everything
needs to stop whilst this happens. (sorry if this doesn't make much
sense - i'm in a huge rush)
