...And should we wait for it?

There still remains two major concerns: arm build issue, and h_errno
fix which is recently introduced in upstream cvs.  Arm issue is a bit
for all debian users.  h_errno fix patch is very fresh, so it
shouldn't include, IMHO.  And releasing -9 is more important.

I really want to release 2.3.1-9, it resolves some RC bugs: #170507,
#174267, #174436.  From Daniel Jacobowitz, #174781 is not grave bug,
so we can downgrade to another severity.

Any comments are welcome.
