I fully realize that too :)

"Most good processes have room for exceptions. There are definitely 
times when judgment calls must be made by certain teams or people to get 
the release out on time.  After completing almost 40 releases of Fedora 
(test and final releases), we should be fairly familiar with what those 
situations are and who needs to make them. I plan to propose a light 
weight process for transparently documenting those situations and which 
teams and people act on the release’s behalf." [1]
