Releasing 2.6 [Was: bzr-hookless-email doesn't work with bzr 2.6]

That is actually one of the big reasons why 2.6 hasn't happened yet.  All
the core devs (like me) just run from the tip of trunk. So we don't feel
the need for a release to get the functionality we put into it. The other
problem was some internal restructuring at Canonical. The team that
focussed on Bazaar was focusing elsewhere, and we were trying to help other
teams to do a release so that the knowledge would be spread over more
However, after many rounds if "sure, we'll do it," but not actually
managing to coordinate it, I'm looking to just do a release. I want to land
the connection-reset patch I have for 2.4, and then do snapshot releases of
2.4,5,6b4. And then hopefully no changes for a 2.6.0-final release.
Hopefully we can poke Jelmer one more time to get 2.6.0 into Debian.

If someone wants to help do the release, all the docs of how to do it are
in doc/developers/releasing.txt
