Hi Larry,

If we release last minute on Friday - and I should really have set a exact time
and zone beforehand - at say Anchorage time, we still have about 1 day,
14hrs[1] to work on 2.1 before it is branch 2.2.

Although that will be 10am on Saturday for me - so at least 10hrs of precious
packaging time gone ;)

But to quote Tim: "We're not going anywhere".  There will still be bugs in QGIS
2.3 to work on after the release.  And I trust that you're not going to stop
bug fixing just because the fixes don't make it into 2.2.

Of course that's a bit odd and it's an relative arbitrarily set date (and time
and zone) - but I'd still like to keep it.

Good job.  Although we now need lighttp and spawn-cgi now, don't we?  I saw
something in the cdash logs.  Probably something I need to add to osgeo4w.

So we need to coordinate that I don't branch between two of your possibly
dependant last minute commits?  The interruption by branching should be short.
