Hi, this plan sounds good and non-disruptive, thank you for thinking about it.

The freeze dates [1] are just a couple weeks/months away. I don't think we will have enough time (at least I don't) to finish your entire plan, and personally I would like to focus on other things - i.e. getting cargo and debcargo into Testing.

We can certainly begin by uploading rand-0.5 and rand-core-0.2 though; I have just done that.
