Correct. Sorry if I didn't make it clear.

Which is what I worry about. I *cannot* work on it right now. I'm moving
to Russian tomorrow, then to Paris for the OpenStack summit.

I'm also worried if 0.13 doesn't migrate, because it's going to be more
difficult to update version 0.12 to Jessie.

It'd be awesome if we could allow a bit more delay for OpenRC this time,
and not be so hyper-strict with the freeze date for it. I know I'm
asking to break the rules, and I don't like it either... :(
