Heh. Why me?

Okay, I did all releases since 2012, but that only happened because we
needed a release, but no one wanted to actually "do it". I am in no way
any special, nor do I have any decision powers on this.

So since we apparently have a volunteer who wants to do a release (you),
great, I don't have to do it. :-P

The instructions on how to do this is in the wiki:

I don't know. I think the last releases always were done because there
was new stuff (bugfixes or features) we wanted to get out. My approach
always was to announce on the mailing list that I will do the release on
date XXXX if no one does one before, then wait for a couple of weeks
until date XXXX and do the release.

That's about all the information that I can come up with right now.

Thanks for doing a new xcb release & cheers,
