Then it seems we should have the expectation of rebasing during every
major OLPC release, since we are doing time based releases and so is

This means we need a strategy of to handle this, and not just find
someone for this time, but get better at doing it so that it becomes
less of an issue every time.

Ubuntu rebases off Debian unstable every six months. When a new
development cycle opens, they first update the toolchain - compilers
etc - then have a period to suck in debian packages, then a
stabilisation period, then a feature freeze, then progressively more
freezes before release. See
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IntrepidReleaseSchedule for an example.
