Argh. I've got a few pertinent issues here:

 * I'm *really* busy over the next few weeks (work and debconf) which
   make things awkward for me to fit stuff in. :-/

 * IIRC this should also be another buster point release, possibly the
   last before it's dropped / passed over to LTS? Or are we thinking
   another one in August for Buster? Checking last year's dates, we
   released on Aug 14 so I'm thinking maybe we could/should push back
   that last point release into August. In that case, I'd be happier
   to do a bullseye-only point release in July. Neither of the dates
   you suggest are ideal for me (see above!), but under time pressure
   it's easier to cope with a single release rather than two.

 * We have some secure-boot related updates that have not yet filtered
   through for buster and bullseye. We're working on stuff for bullseye
   now, but buster may take a little bit longer yet. I'd prefer the
   9th if possible.
