It's a pitty I can't easily attend to this conference call, as it seems
a lot of decisions are taken there. Anyway let me comment the part
concerning 0.12 stable:

I think someone should actively follow the patches committed to HEAD and
backport them when they seems to be stable material. I guess it's what's
Justin plans to do.

OTOH, it might be useful if people sending patches to HEAD adds a small
comment about cherry-picking the patch to stable if it applies.

Debian gets regular uploads with the contents of the -stable tree

Following the minutes from last week, I sent a call for release, with a
deadline today. I only got the patch series from Kevin. There are
currently 44 patches waiting in the stable tree, so I guess we can go
for a release. I plan to do that later this week if nobody opposes.
