thanks for that.

Feel free to paste the “fixed bugs” section in your mail next time, it's
nice to have all info in a single place.

That's large, but doesn't look too insane; finding/fixing regressions
should be doable.

I suggest you wait for extra opinions from other release team members,
but my gut feeling would be an upload to unstable, where it would stay
for an extended period (say 20 days), so that we have time to catch
possible regressions.
