That's why I'd like to see part of the responsibilities of the monthly
release manager include the review of commits for cherry picking.
(Admittedly, I'm not doing a very good job of that this month so far.)
 That's an extra bit of work, but given that perldelta construction
seems to consist of commit-by-commit review anyway, it's only an extra
step to an existing process.

There's always been a small handful of people -- my impression is that
the number has expanded a bit with the expansion of commit bits and
the monthly release cycle.  Hopefully that trend can continue.
