Hey. Precisely due to the central location of the patches I have stirred 
up the debate on the establishment of a 3.5.13 branch in the GIT. That 
seems like an ideal solution. Patches would be available and we can work 
on them together. And it also simplifies the new source tarballs ready 
for others, who creates packages.

Perhaps it would be helpful if he joined us and Tim Williams, who prepares 
packages for Mandriva. I am not clear whether he takes the specs and 
patches from your packages, or if he also backport patches?

Date of release interested me, because standard sources for Debian and 
Ubuntu still contain original 3.5.13 - that is, with a number of bugs. 
But I do not want to rush.
