That's what we have mentors for (among other things). Even small
podling should be able to cut releases as long as they have mentors
who're willing to help.

Of course that highlights the issue of having active mentors. If a
potential podling can't find enough interested mentors, then it's
probably best to first build momentum elsewhere before considering
