please give it a week to "mature". This is a great release and a lot of
people are waiting for it. But there are certainly small bugs left... and
a week of testing and bug-fix-only commits would be beneficial, imho.

I'd like to test seat hot-plugging and removal, but the necessary usb
device at work, and I won't be able to do it before Wednesday.

A related question is wheter Fedora should get this release in rawhide:
I think yes, but with --disable-kdbus --enable-compat-libs. It's nice
that https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1065572 got fixed just
in time.
