Hi guys,

I'd like to propose a 0.8.12 maintainance release schedule for gstreamer
and gst-plugins. This release is needed for several reasons:
* stability fixes (e.g. .sub files causing OOM or machine-hang in
thumbnailer, yikes [possibly also problematic in 0.10, please
forwardport the patch in bugzilla])
* media playback fixes (e.g. AVC parsing in quicktime [already
forwardported to 0.10], improved streaming media support in various
demuxers [patches in bugzilla], particularly useful for the firefox
* some good alsa fixes from tim end of last year

I'll take the bite and do the release, but Thomas asked me to mail the
list to ensure everything goes according to plan. So, are there any
critical bugs that people would like to see fixed before it? Known
issues/regressions? Bugs with patches that I missed? Now's your time to
speak up. I'm not planning any more big changes, but can do small
favours here and there as my time permits.

Proposed schedule:
* do release tomorrow (make distcheck works) for both
* over the week, work on bugs (regressions) that pop up and possibly do
a new pre-release end-of-week or in weekend. If none, I'll do the
release here already
* else, monday or tuesday next week, do final release

Please comment,
