[ros-users] [Discourse.ros.org] [Packaging and Release Management] Releasing repositories form "other" people

I don't think a drive-by-release with no plans for maintenance makes much sense.

Some of those pending rosdistro PRs have a lot of open issues and PRs on the upstream repo. Just doing a bloom release with no way to fix those issues only half solves the issue of package abandonment. 

A releaser should at least fork the repo and make themselves a maintainer in the package.xml.

Thats just my 2.
