Preparing updates for 3.5.13

In the user-list, I announced the state of preparation updates for 3.5.13:

I also strongly modify the article in Etherpad. Now there is also a 
current listing of included patches. This will be easier for me to keep 
it up to date... and perhaps even easier for you:

I would like to discuss with you whether further delay the official 
release updates? I intended to add to updates all packages for which were 
following patches:

- Remove additional unneeded tq method conversions
- Rename obsolete tq methods to standard names
- Rename a few stragglers
- Fix inadvertent "TQ" changes

For some packages, already contained in the update, these patches solve 
tricky problems. But these patches applies to almost all the remaining 
packages. Therefore, I ask if I should go into it (will take some time to 
process it), or ask Tim whether to issue updates as they are ready now?

Personally, I tend to do - to release as soon as possible. Updates already 
solves many errors. And that's why I find it useful to release as soon as 
possible. What is your opinion?

I attach link to archive containing the current set of patches (5.4 MiB). 
Maybe useful for others who prepare packages for other distributions.
