I was quite pleased when I saw the msg :-)
What  are the possibilities/restrictions when it comes to integrating those point releases into the Debian pkgs for wheezy?
I've read that the freeze is planned for june, but I haven't found which date it will be. June 1st or june 30th therfor seems to matter a lot wrt to this.
I guess we can integrate the 4.0.1 release, but the 4.0.2 could be tricky. 
Say that if the freeze happens before 4.0.2 is released, does that mean we can only cherry-pick the (upstream) commits for fixes for which a RC bug is present in debian's BTS? What other options are there? And how can we utilise them to the fullest?


PS: one of you happen to have a hand in this 'sudden' announcement of the point releases? ;-)
