The same statement that a tag like 'joyride-2153:+' means: someone
specifically retested an issue on a build known to contain the
package(s) you want to ship and could not reproduce the issue according
to the testcase(s) discussed in the ticket.

a) How would you like to do so?
b) Do you agree that it's a good idea to start maintaining both a
development and a release buildstream now? Would you prefer to wait
for a few more days? If so, why?

I've seen. Could you post a link to the code which performs this task so
that we can see whether it can be extended to other subsystems? (Also,
does it publish any web-pages or is it email-only?)
