Green light from me!  To be clear, does the 1.2 branch now reflect the final RC version?  I can build 1.2.1 RPM/Debs from that.

I think we should make a concerted effort to get 1.2.1 upstream into Ubuntu so that it hits the next LTS cycle.  Hopefully it isn't too late for the Debian release cycle too...

That looks like an excellent summary of the roadmap discussion.
