next releases: 1.22.12/1.23.0


Some thoughts about the next lintian release(s): 

As we killed already
a lot of bugs, 1.22.11 is in testing since today and I got the
udeb checks allmost ready I would propose to stop working on 1.22.12
tomorrow (Sunday) and preparing a first rc, so we could get it into
unstable sometime in the next week.

We should then target 1.23.0. I have noted some thoughts about that
in the private/TODO file:

1) add .udeb support -- almost done, see 1.22.11+udeb branch
2) go through all checks and try to move common code to modules
3) go through the test suite and organise it more cleanly
4) perhaps already try to overhaul the Errors/Warnings concept
  (#197955, #189656)
5) overhaul the overrides concept to enable source overrides

1,2,3 should be doable, 4,5 can perhaps depend on the further going
of Sarge. We should not push them in too late.

Thoughts, comments?
