just a general idea, but wouldn't it make sense to revive the
arch-releng mailing list a bit + found a release engineering team?

We got a few additions to our monthly releases:

* Arch Linux Docker
* Arch Linux Vagrant Boxes
* Arch Linux Cloud Images (soon)
* Arch Linux Tarball

Would be cool, if we could manage to revive the #archlinux-releng
channel on freenode, revive the mailing list and maybe even have weekly
meetings, like the devops team has.

Just my 2 cents,
