I agree that we need to get this one to updates-testing as soon as
possible (entirely because we've gone too long without pushing bugfixes).

I think our normal mode should be to push to rawhide, wait a bit for the
screaming to die down (maybe fix a few bugs), then push to
updates-testing. Is that the intended flow of events?

I sign off as well.

Not a problem about the branches; we just realized after talking that we
needed a policy on how it should be done and it seemed like we'd be "in
a maze of twisty branches, all alike" if we didn't set a policy.
