In keeping with the theory of "release early, release often", I suggest
that you go ahead and release the new version to experimental at least. If it's
good enough for Debian to use it's good enough for experimental. And it would
make that mass of "pending" bug reports rather more comprehensible, and avoid
people asking "Why has that been pending for a year and a half" repeatedly (as I
most certainly would be doing if I hadn't found this message).
It would also get you properly listed as a comaintainer in the PTS.
You're going to get the bug report about archiving vs. versioning anyway since
Debian's using it, so it's not like you'll get unnecessary bug reports by putting
it in experimental.
