Alberto was the unofficial milestone manager. When he became busy, we had
to let that go, because none of us were as stubborn as he was to make sure
it happens and works. :)

And a person stubborn and rude enough to say "you're going to be working on
this for the next release because it is urgent for people" but also
welcoming enough to feedback saying "it's not that urgent, but this is
actually more urgent" or "this will take us longer to achieve".

Alberto did that very well. :)

If there are urgent bug fixes, there is no particular reason not to make an
urgent release.

That sounds really serious. It's one hell of a job you did there!

Great initiative. You have my blessing. :)

Thank you.
