I think it is a good sign that community is volunteering to do the release

Here is the formal release work starting email[1] and discussing details on
when to branch and when to release giving sufficient time for everyone who
want to get their favorite jiras in. Dapeng (RM for 1.6.0) also started a
jira[2] to track the release work in detail:

". I will say that the only Jira I've seen from outside recently
didn't exactly get a warm reception. [1] Not rejected, just radio silence."

That is not true, this is just one off instance. It has only been a week
since that jira has been created and I am sure one of us will review it
soon . But there are numerous instances where community was very welcoming
for new contributors and users[3][4][5]. In fact I feel proud to say that
community enabled many folks who filed bugs to also contribute bug fix
