The goal for R7 is to make sure that everything that should
work, does work. And to make sure the documentation is
correct! Release handling is a huge and complicated area
which certainly has room for improvements... If we add
anything new at all, it will be simple tools/scripts as
support for the existing release handling mechanism. I don't
think we will have time to look into routines for updating
smaller parts until R8.
