There was a thread about the usefulness and lifetime of the 1.0.x
series about a month ago. The interest level was very low so my plan
based on that was to stick to only important bug fixes, and phase it
out within the next 4-6 months. But to do that, I'm looking for ways
to help distros/users integrate 1.1.x releases without being "forced
to upgrade" earlier than they want to in order to get bugfixes.

If you have thoughts on why you don't want to use 1.1.x, hearing those
would be helpful in further planning how to proceed with 1.0.x.
