I don't really think that's a problem myself, it is just to be
expected due to the longer than usual 1.3 freeze. People have
had just as much time to /write/ their code, all that changed
was the time available to /merge/ their code into upstream.

I'd like to see is be much stricter about following a monthly
release schedule in general. It makes it easier for distro
maintainers to accurately plan ahead for when libvirt releases
will sync up with their schedules, if they can reliably know
that we'll always release on the nearest weekday that follows
the 1st of the month.
