+1  I like this pass through model.  I know it's a little strange having the TC
"gate" on changes to the release type but I think this works through this
nicely.  The only wart is defining who is responsible for updating the
governance repo when things change in the release repo.  Is it the project team
or the release team?

Yours Tony.
