There was AFAIR a few months ago a public announcement that the  
processes would be subject to change.

In the same way that:

* I trust members of Team for Plone 3 to work effectively, and to  
consult (with or without processes that are explicit), and to produce  
from PLIPs what is required by current and future Release Managers <http://plone.org/about/team/ReleaseManagers 

so, too:

* I trusted those same Team members for 3 -- plus (then) potential  
members of the Team for 4 -- to find the processes that best suit the  
two groups within the one Team <http://plone.org/about/team/FrameworkTeam 


AFAICT, from a respectable distance, the changes/processes that  
prepare for Plone 4:

1. may _complement_ the _processes_ for Plone 3

-- so for example we have some vision of 3 in the Roadmap in Trac (and  
from any perspective, that looks good)

2. in _no way complicate_ the work of the _people_ (within the Team)  
who are focused on 3

3. in _no way complicate_ the work of the _person_ (logically not  
within the Team) who is managing the releases for Plone 3.x.

Complement, not complicate.
