Linaro 11.08 - Release response team setup

At Connect Q3.11, we discussed about setting up a release response team, a list
of people being a point of contact in case of issues during the release days
(from RC day to the final day, e.g for Linaro 11.08 August 22nd, 23rd, 24th).

These people could be on duty (online and responsive in 10 minutes) or
on standby (online or offline, can be called, responsive in 1h).

Below, you can find a list of the needed profile:
 * 2 RMs, 1 on duty and 1 on standby to turn over
 * 2 build engineer for each Platform, on duty
 * 2 LEB board testers, on duty
 * 1 LT board (non-LEB) tester, on standby
 * 1 WG liaison, on standby
 * IS members (follow existing process [1])
 * freshleafmedia members

It should cover any issues related to apply fixes, commit to VCS, re-spin,
trigger a build, update, update milestone page, infrastructure.

We can refine this process in case of other critical paths are identified.
The plan is to make a good proactive process when a situation occurs and
escalate to the right persons.

Could you provide your point of contacts for this month release?
