This point is self-contradictory and spells disaster:

1) You cannot have a rapid deployment with urgency=low as a priority.

2) Asking people to use urgency=low can only result in Sarge freezing exactly
when this 2.6 to 2.8 transition is incomplete, which could be seriously messy.

I therefore recommend using urgency=medium instead.

Other than that, the rest of your release conditions make perfect sense.
