     Happy New Year everybody,

    as planned we should release 5.0.0 around Jan 15. This means that
the best to meet that deadline would be to enter freeze tomorrow Thur,
then have an RC2 over the w.e. and then if all goes well we can roll
out the release next Tuesday.

    If there is no issue with this plan I will then release RC1 tomorrow
probably in the evening european time,

Because it creates a change in behavior that will be easier to deal with at
a major release number (and because I want to backport the patches as soon
as possible, and likely whoever is working on the next release of debian
will as well, since they have the same problem!) I would really like to get
these patches in before you freeze:
There is /no/ functional meaning to libvirt major release numbers, so
from that POV, major changes like are expected in any release.


Yeah, my brain knows that but it just feels like a better story if a change in behavior happens at a release that has a lot of zeros in it :-)


  IOW there
is no reason to rush into 5.0.0 unless they do indeed satisfy normal
review.


And actually thinking about it more, it would probably be better to find somebody who's running debian new enough to have an nftables backend and can test those patches before I push them, rather than rushing in something that may only work for me. (And after all, the next release will still have a .0 at the end!)

Likewise, it would be good to get these in, since they are fixing a bonafide crash:

These would still be nice to get in, though.
