I think the point I'm making is largely being ignored. I'm not seeing
much room for volunteers, and a lot of indication that
conversations/decisions are happening off list and being carried back
rather than being done entirely openly.

We might disagree on what constitutes "sufficient time" here - it looks
like one week notice for the 1.6.0 branch, and then one week (planned)
to release from there.

OK, fair. I'll assume that's a one-off then, and apologize for missing
the other examples.
