I have updated all the 1. problem 2. issues raised by community 3. solution we already discussed in
the review https://review.opendev.org/c/openstack/governance/+/839897/2/reference/release-naming.rst

I would request all of us to read them in detail and understand the problem and what all solution
we already discussed.

One important point here to note is that problem is not *who is doing the process* instead it is *'name' with
cultural, historical, and poltical reason*. If you think TC doing the process or Community members doing it (before
couple of cycle, it was community member) is the problem and foundation doing it can solve this issue, I will be
more happy to know the what all new ways foundation will try to solve these problem. Because key here
is solve the problem or drop the things which create the problem instead of just shifting the problem from
one place to other.
