On the subject of Debian, we could probably get an RC into experimental and ask for archive rebuilds and say that we were hoping to get 2.72 approved for a bookworm stable update.

I'm also in favor of an RC release, I can then rebuild Fedora packages using the tarball from the tester list and do some kind of A/B testing.

Sorry to hear Zack, hope you're doing ok. I think your input on the issues we've been talking about has been enough
for us to each a good position for now.

Paul in particular, please let me know if there's something I can do to help. I'm already giving it the standard rounds of usage
in Gentoo. Perhaps we could tag an RC and shove it into the platform-testers list? It's non-commital so while I'd like
to move forward before March for the final release, if in the event you didn't feel comfortable doing that,
we'd at least have made some progress.
