It goes something like this: 

If you have bug fixes, minor features, and other otherwise "safe" stuff,
then tag off of me. I have a ~ 1 month cycle: 2 weeks for merges, 2+
weeks for code freeze. If a bug is found in an rc, then a new rc is
shipped, and the freeze clock restarts.

If you are doing changes to furth, xl-whatever, etc, then tag off of -t
and send patches that way.

command deltions/archive incompatible changes are in limbo right now. If
furth comes along "soon", then send those to Tom. If furth takes "a long
time", then I'll open up a 1.3 development window, and we'll lump all of
those patches together, and do a 1.3rc1.
