Actually I think Andreas could do the interim releases (if he wants to).
There is nothing wrong with having one maintainer for the development tree
and one for the stable tree. Andreas already has a .rpm with all the known
bugfixes, all we need now, is a tarball of that stuff.

And the 0.8 userlevel tools will be important: The 0.9 kernel changes are 
probably fairly huge, so Linus may not include them in 2.4. That means we
need stable 0.8 tools for 2.4.
