Follow that plan and its ok with me. Maybe make that a NEWS.Debian
instead of DebConf, but thats your decision.
Tell me when you have 1.5 uploaded, so I can get 1.6 out of NEW.

Its not that having 3 versions for some time will kill us. Its just that
we should not release with all 3 (best is only one, if possible).
