Ok, either there is a bug preventing me from ever getting/seeing the "add a 
release" menu, or my account and/or project is configured incorrectly -- but I 
sure can't find any setting that *I* can change to fix this.

Note that I don't see the "delete a release" option either, but was able to 
delete my 4.5 release by hacking in the proper URI in my browser, and I can 
edit the text of a releae, so it does not appear to be simple role permission 

I also don't see the track subtabs in my account view either, as I do in 
others who have projects.  Could that be related?
