You're welcome!

If you'd like to share your/a surname, I can credit you by your full name as a contributor in the release announcement (as you saw in the
email). By bringing this matter to my attention, you have spared me embarrassment.[1 again] Otherwise, like Gene in the same credits, you
can remain mononymous, if potentially ambiguous.  :)

Happy to remain mononymous in this case - thank you. :-)

I _hate_ working under deadline pressure. You may see why I try to avoid doing so. This is why I would prefer to have someone else serving as groff release engineer who can say, "it's good enough to ship". They can catch me in a lull, not a frenzy. And I will
    seldom feel frenzied if I don't have to meet a deadline.

i'm in no position to criticise in this regard. Even though i was only operating under exhaustion rather than a deadline, on Sunday i updated my man page ports of s6 ecosystem documentation, and not only managed to tag releases without crucial Makefile changes, but also amended the commits instead of tagging new releases. :-/ Release process checklist updated. :-P
