Now that policy 4.7.0 is out we (really) should get a release done

The other reason is as you already mentioned …

… this (and #1065431). Thanks for merging that one!

"Soon". I plan to do a release within the next 10 days. Probably won't
have time before Saturday, though.

Done that, too, for a few MRs, but probably for fewer than you did.

A bit better than last year from my point of view, but it obviously
could be better. I still only find time for Lintian every other month
or so — nevertheless I seem the only one who dares to do a release.
(Which makes me kinda feel honored, but it actually is a really bad
bus-factor. 😐)
