You vetoed using dev/staging for preparation of a mergeable sequence of
independent patches with corresponding automatic convert-ly updates.

Since the automatic updates need to be combined with their respective
patches for disruptive syntax changes (changes that don't work without
running convert-ly), I don't see a sensible way around stepping the
version number in between the patches.

I don't see Rietveld up to the task of reviewing all that suitably.
I'll prepare such a sequence, but I have no idea how it can make it
through the policies.

In the interests of 'get it done and make the paper work agree', would you and Graham let me know which issues/patches are going through slightly different channels? I gather that most or all of this would be Rietveld only, so it's essentially invisible to the policy weeny, but if I can stay out of the way, I'd be glad to turn the blind eye.
