And that's exactly what I do. I wait for the expected feedback to come
in and if it looks good, I do a release.

I ususally delay the "official" announcement a bit to give the Android
builder/testers some time to give feedback after I make the tarballs as
they are good at finding problems no one else seems to catch, and then I
do the email announcements.
