Mmm, yes and no.
So we can split the phases here if we want. If there's stuff that needs to go
into the driver for 7.1, I'll defer to expert opinion about which code train
is most appropriate. And if the maintainership for a given module wants to
handle stabilizing it directly, that's fine too, subject to getting it
delivered enough in advance of the release date that we can do final smoke
testing - three days to a week, say.
But if I'm handed a tarball - or more accurately, a tag - I'll still need to
distcheck from that with the magic release fu enabled so the tarball gets
named the right thing, and tag that instant in time as being "the 7.1
release". The alternative is to tag and release the module on the katamari
day itself, which is what I'll be doing for every other module anyway. It's
about the same amount of work for me either way.
I don't particularly care which repo I pull from.
So I guess the answer is, if you want to stabilize and bless it yourself, you
need to deliver earlier, and hope that the rest of the world doesn't break
you in the final week.
