There is no "version 22.0.x", this is merely an internal string for
keeping track of pretests.

I consider it completely pointless to upload "emacs22" before Emacs 22
is released, since emacs-snapshot is available in unstable.

My opinion is my opinion.  If you want to get the opinion of the
upstream developers as a whole, you have to ask on the Emacs developer
list which you didn't, either, before announcing your intention here
where it is more or less an accident that I happen to read it.

As I said: at the current point of time it looks like first or second
quarter.  Longer than that, and the first murders among Emacs
developers would occur.  Given that you are talking about a 2008
release line, there is no incentive to create additional confusion.
