As you know we ( QA Community ) want all the testing to be focused on 
the release we are about to push out the door and we would like ( and 
some expect ) that maintainers are keeping the same focus and give what 
time they have to address the bugs we find in the process as Lennart has 
correctly pointed out.

Now that to me the begs the question with our short release cycles do we 
have any numbers on how many maintainers have the time to be working on 
both and are those maintainers that do have that time actually taking 
advantage of the current model in place?
