I am explicitly CCing Brian, not knowing if he is on the list.

If time is not pressing too much, I would like to see it through route
2. Our delta should always be minimal to what upstream is providing ...
and since we have upstream so close to us ... .
Brian, Graziano, would a point release be anything reasonable to
consider? Or is version 2 just to close to think about yesterday's stuff
too much. On the positive side of a point release would be an easier way
to prepare something for backports.debian.org.
