First of all thanks to Antti for taking this on. However, is it wise to have a 
single person be responsible for this? The issue is that we are still dealing 
with a CI system that see's issues with tests meaning that some changes take 
several attempts to get through the CI even if the change is good.

Right now there are no changes either staged or integrating which is wasting 
the precious little time we have before the RC is tagged.

I would therefore like to request that we have more than one person able to 
stage changes to help cover times when Antti is not available.
