I think we should try to convince the release team to let it in - after
all, the pdftex patch is the same that is already in etch and fixed a RC
bug there, it's not RC in texlive only because no package FTBFS because
I guess we should wait until the package is old enough so that it would
migrate by itself, if there was no freeze. The same (i.e., wait) we
should do with the tetex packages.
texlive-bin needs 8 days
tetex-bin needs 7 days
tetex-base needs 11 days (upload under way)
tex-common needs 11 days (upload due today)
So maybe we should send a mail to -release next week on tuesday, asking
for the -bin packages to be included, and one more a couple of days
Or am I wrong in assuming that the "n-days old" rule still holds for
hinted testing migration?
