Sounds good, the release dance must end, so the next can begin.

I've marked the sru bugs (merged since 398 and still pending) against the 
distribution of juju and the oneiric updates milestone.

Sounds good. Is the proper place for this reproducing test case the bug report?

A bit more broad of a question is how many SRUs do we want to do for oneiric. 
We've got a two pending changes, that we can get merged (or already are) sequentially trunk 
before new features are merged.

After that though, we're not currently maintaining a stable release branch 
against oneiric so additional SRUs won't be possible.
