No. But I did not volunteer to make a release too ;-)

The real work with a release is not in packaging something. The real
work starts after you release...

The point of a release is that users are provided with something they
can use. If you release "ffmpeg v0.5" (or whatever you call it) and then
you ask people not to use it (otherwise they cannot report bugs), you
are just asking for more and more users complaining...
