After FF there's a period of ~ 2 months where we can't upload new  

I would be good to be able to finish the processing of those packages  
that are _almost_ finished, but just didn't make it. While it's still  
in fresh memory of the reviewers and uploaders.

Also,  many uploaders are quite disappointed. It would be a  
consolation if we published those packages that didn't quite make it  
(but still get +2 votes) on the PPA. They should be compiled for the  
version they "missed", currently jaunty. Thus, the PPA would contain a  
"preview" of packages that didn't make it for jaunty, but will be  
included in karmic.
