This sounds really cool! I'm pretty excited about more automation and
GHC releases more than once a year (maybe every 6 months?).
In my experience both automation and regular releases are a
significant win. They often result in more and quicker feedback, are
more motivating and make it easier to iterate/improve the project and
keep it in "releasable" state.
So thanks a lot for working on this! :)
