Following past discussions[1] on the TC, here is my proposal to cover
for release management, stable branch management and VMT efforts within

Feel free to suggest title or wording changes :)

Official Title: Release cycle management
PTL: Thierry Carrez

Mission Statement:
To organize the release cycle and the work necessary to produce
time-based, coordinated releases of the integrated components of
OpenStack. To collect bugfix backports and produce stable point releases
for the previously-released branch. To coordinate the publication of
security patches and advisories (OSSA) for security-supported branches.

Expected deliverables:
Signed release tarballs, security advisories, release tooling and automation

Team members:
Members of the Release Managers team, the stable-maint team and the
Vulnerability Management team. (Note: All members must become ATCs
through direct contribution to other supported OpenStack repositories)
