To let users even a bit more time to test whilst it is in Sid and also
get the chance to add translation updates without asking for a second
freeze exception I propose the following:
* When I upload it to unstable I'll ask for translation updates and
let translators 30 days time to send them to me.
* 30 days (actually a day or two later to be able to accept
translation updates that are sent very or even a bit too late) after
deborphan 1.8.0 has been uploaded to unstable I'll ask for
a permission to upload deborphan 1.8.1 to unstable. Ideally 1.8.1
would just add these translation updates to 1.8.0. In case there
are trivial bug fixes I'll also ask for permission to include them.
* If everything works well you allow 1.8.1 to enter testing 40 days
after 1.8.0 and accordingly 10 days after 1.8.1 has been uploaded to

Will do so, for the experimental and for the unstable upload.
