Sounds fair enough. I have no problems in doing the push...

No. Stability is a major issue. Remember what rawhide is there for; it's
the testing ground. I have no problems doing the mono packaging, wait a
few months and then bounce it down to stable, but never at the cost of
stability. Release versions need to be treated with cotton gloves as not
everyone is as brave as us nutjobs!

Should have...
