That is something the kernel team needs to plan, the release team has no
schedule for it. It's not an explicit release target or goal, but it
would be nice if we could include this in etch, to reduce the pain.

-> stable release team. The one member sitting next to me agreed that
updates will be allowed to enter stable point releases iff the fixed
issues confirm to the usual fix policy (eg. fixes broken arch, fixes
something considered rc, doesn't break stuff)
