Like I responded to Stefan, the second patch will be in -stable (well,
technically it should be 3 or 4 separate patches).

I will open launchpad bugs for both patches.

When they do land in stable, does that make them likely to get picked up
for Karmic? Or are we just talking Lucid here? Not trying to be
insistent; just trying to understand the process. :)

Is there anything else I should do?

Thanks!
