first off: sorry, there will detailed instructions for universe FFe's soonish
(I guess I won't come around to this until Friday, maybe someone else from
motu-release is faster though ;)).

I'm all for it :).

I guess the best approach to request a standing FFe is to write to the
ubuntu-motu list, stating the reason why this is requested. (e.g. upstream
releasing a well-tested stable version somewhen during FF is a good reason).

Ahem, this doesn't sound like a very convincing reason for a standing FFe
though. As we've just started with FF, I doubt that a normal FFe will be
rejected for your merge. Or are there other reasons for a standing FFe?
(side note: a premature package should never be uploaded, regardless if we're
in FF or not).
