To give this some context, I was discussing this with Chris off-list.

I mentioned perl-doc-cats a couple of times.  With a little bit of
searching for this term, I found it:

I believe we don't have a functioning release process on windmill (our
server) at the moment.  We've tried moving things over to new servers
a couple of times, but it's a big project with several components
(Web, mail, IRC) and nobody wanted to oversee the whole thing although
various people were keen to help.  That's fair enough, it's not fun.

I welcome anyone who wants to approach this problem (thank you, Chris)
but peronsally I want to focus on smaller, easier tasks that will have
larger benefits for the group.
