New job role - Release Test Manager?
This is my first post on SQA Forums. A brief background first. I have been a Software Test professional for about 11 years now, the last 4-5 years as a Test Lead. Currently I am employed in London but I am looking to move back to my native India. My company has an office in Mumbai and I have sought a position there. It appears there is a position for a 'Release Test Manager' that I could potentially fill in. At the moment, I have absolutely no clue what the role or job entails neither have I got any details from my bosses about it. The only bit I know is that there is a 5-strong team in Mumbai that works on various projects. At some point my manager is visiting them and he will float the idea of using the 5 test engineers for release testing only.
Thoughts from anyone with any experience as a Release Test Manager would be much appreciated. I intend to take up the position if it is plausible enough.
Many thanks and look forward to hearing from you, folks.

Here's a bit about Release Testing at my company that might help. We don't have the specific role of "Release Test Manager". Your mileage may vary:
Thanks for the warm welcome, Joe! I hugely appreciate the link you sent across. It does give me a sense of what to expect in this role. I'm very excited to be considering this opportunity but details are still hazy. More on this later. Thanks once again.

I still do the same job but under a different title, so these are just my own personal examples on what Joe is saying.
