As you noted, most libvirt developers have been attending KVM Forum
this week and payed little to no attention to the mailing list -
including me, which is why the release notes are a bit on the sparse
side O:-)

May I suggest we give it a few extra days? Like, instead of releasing
this weekend, wait until next Wednesday or something like that? That
would give me time to at least take care of the release notes, and I
don't think the delay will affect our users negatively.
