[OT] Hoe is awesome

Can you release 8 projects in 45 minutes?

My first branch commit was at 5:40, the last at 6:18 averaging 5 minutes per project to:

quality check *
branch *
upload to rubyforge
announce on rubyforge
draft email
commit branch *

* not handled by hoe

I bulked all my email sends into one operation afterwards for another ~ five minutes.

I even had to delete and re-release one package because I forgot to update the gemspec correctly when I converted it to Hoe.

(If super-easy releases aren't enough, you also get featured on the Hoedown.)
