We have started to recognize people as having release-upload rights, even if
they aren't formal maintainers (this is really fairly recent and so far has been
handled on a case-by-case basis).  Siddhesh, if this applies to you in your
current role, please get in touch at (ideally CC'ing one or
more maintainers who can confirm).

"Upload rights" isn't much of a title, though, so I would be interested to hear
more about what a release manager does (although Mark gives some hints and I
think I can make a reasonable guess from the name). It's something that could be
formalized / officially recognized if it's generalizable to other packages.
