What does a PTL need to achieve in a term beyond managing a release? How 
many PTLs come into the position with a docket of major changes they 
want to implement in each project? Seems like that would be really 
disruptive to the flow of a team.

Or is the achievement equal to the number of blueprints merged? If so, 
that has to be scoped to the complexity and priority of the blueprint, 
who is doing the work and how many people in the core team are helping 
to get them through, which is not really something fully in the PTLs
