Hi Manuel,
Are plans are to wait for some specific reason to actually release
1.2.7 since we are now focusing on 1.3.  In other words, Debian
is giving us a convenient reason to actually release...
What is the drop-dead date to get the bits posted so
that you can do your sanity checks and get it included?
And what is your "feel comfortable, and not loose sleep over it"
date for the same?

BTW - We had one bugfix since rc1, an improper cast inside
one of the AMD64 atomic op assembly routines, see:

I've not seen any negative feedback about rc1.
