Concept wise, do you reckon something like this would work:

 + a new libvirt-announce mailing list, low trafic, purely for release
    announcements and similar

Along with us announcing a '"release candidate" build through it (instead of the
present approach).  If it looks good after a period of time (a week or something
as you mentioned), then it gets re-released as the actual release.

If something turns up significantly broken, then we respin as a release candidate
2 and repeat the process.
