I don't think "Total" has anything to do with it. If you don't like the
scope of the release sets then talk about redefining them. A lack of release
sets is not much of a solution. Yes, I know I'm oversimplifying.

But being part of a release set is more than just a commitment on the part
of the maintainer. It's a commitment on the part of everyone else - the
release-team, the translators, the documenters, the accesibilitizers.
There's a reason why 5th Toe is less cohesive than GNOME Desktop and it's
not just a matter of the name or the website domain.
