Release manager should be able to "target to series"

Bug Description

The "release manager" of a series in Launchpad is able to edit all aspects of a series.

However, he cannot use "target to series" to target bugs to his own series ! This sounds like a pretty common task for a series release manager.

The workaround is to add the release manager to the "drivers" group, which kinda defeats the purpose of having a per-series release manager.

The target/nomiate form does not know how to restrict the series to just those that the user RM's. The fix would be to check if the user has launchpad.Edit on any series to show the link, and the form needs to filter the series to those that user user has launchpad.Edit on.
