Different parts of the release process are done by different people and they aren't always around at the same time.
Everything up to and including the building of packages (https://gist.github.com/nickvergessen/c ... a778c95a16
) is done by the release manager
(or the development lead if the release manager cannot complete any part of it for any reason). Then the announcement is drafted by the development lead or project manager
in collaboration with a number of other team members (proof reading etc.) and then the announcing/deploying of the release is done by the website lead with either the development lead or a release manager
(As there is quite a bit to do beyond just posting the announcement and making a quick edit to the downloads page).
