I think it's a little more complicated than that.  Or maybe not.  If
there are two committees, one for the repo and one for the release, they
need to work really closely together.  The release cabal needs a stable
set of packages to build the releases from and the repo cabal would need
to enforce that.  E.g. feature freeze, string freeze, etc.

Personally, I'd rather see the current FESCo and Core cabal merged into
a single entity that shares both responsibilities.  The Packaging
Committee would certainly still exist to come up with the packaging
guidelines, so that wouldn't change.  And you immediately get community
involvement in the content of the release isos, which is what I think
Jessie meant by "hopefully there will be more than just me".  Just my
$0.02.
