looks good, and thank you for stepping up to do this. I've written up a
small wiki page with the few things that need to be done and known by the
stable branch maintainer. let me know if there's anything missing and I'll
add it, feel free to reword this for bits I skipped.

Especially as you go along, adding and extending a FAQ section would likely
be helpful to future branch maintainers (unless you've signed up for life ;)

You should now also have write access to the Xorg google calendar, 
please put the proposed dates for the 1.13.x RCs and releases in there.
Finally, your branch page is here:

I just copied this from the 1.12 branch page so here too feel free to modify
it as you see fit.
