I like the idea,
maybe it is possible to automate when closing the issue, triggering a
github action

> I learned recently how Fedora CoreOS folks do their releases and I really

> I think something similar can be useful for Pulp. We already have ~15
> steps in our release guide
> <https://pulp.plan.io/projects/pulp/wiki/Pulp3_Release_Guide> and it's
> without some pre/post-release steps, like release announcement
> collaboration, writing blog posts, etc.
> The idea is simple.
> Have a checklist template (for each type of release if needed).
> Create a github issue with this checklist and mark it as you perform the
> steps.
> In addition post any relevant links as comments.
> Here is the example
> https://github.com/coreos/fedora-coreos-streams/issues/158
> Benefits:
>  - release progress is open and transparent to everyone, including our
> community
>  - it's easy to look at the history if needed
>  - release "guide" is always up to date
>  - if one started a release and can't finish for some reason (e.g. end of
> working day in their time zone), another one can take over
>  - keeps a release person more organized (those who released many times
> sometimes perform steps by memory and might forget some small steps; often
> people multitask and do something while waiting for the builds to be done.
> Our release guide serves the same purpose but one needs to consciously go
> back to it, here it requires you to click the checkbox.)
> Cons:
>   - a potential downside is that it's one more action to do and a new
> process to follow. Though it should be very close to the release guide, so
> I hope it does not add much to our processes, it should not feel like
> something new :)
> Thoughts?
