[xmlsec] that release question again

[I posted this yesterday from the wrong email address, so here it is 
again.  The late breaking news is that gnutls 1.x made it into Debian. 
Still, I'm interested in the latest xmlsec fixes for nss, because I plan 
to enable that engine finally.]

Sorry Aleksey, but I have to ask about when the next release is again.

There is pressure these days for xmlsec 1.2.x since it is required by 
pyxmlsec (see http://bugs.debian.org/228531).  Also, as I mentioned 
before, Debian may be approaching a freeze for the next release, so I'd 
like to get a recent version of xmlsec in before that happens.

Part of this is my fault, because on the last few occasions I should 
have verified that the CVS head was acceptable before asking you to make 
a release.  (In this case I know it's OK because you've only made 
changes for my reported problems :-) .)

The other cause is that I'm being somewhat pedantic about not wanting to 
package a patched xmlsec.  If my package says "version 1.2.3", I want it 
to really mean 1.2.3 as released by upstream.  Also in the case of a 
change to configure.in, it propagates to many other files that must be 
patched, because the Debian build does not run autoconf.
