I'm hoping that plonenext can help a bit with that. If people make a new
release the release manager can include that in plonenext, which makes
it immediately available to people developing against that. I have long
wanted a way to motivate people to make releases when they are ready
instead of only when I send out a call for releases. I'm hoping
plonenext will help with that.
