Good plan.

Unless anybody has any red flag on this, I'll go ahead and do this every
Tuesday.  I'm also going to start linking specific bugs to the Ubuntu
package that need to get fixed in 11.10, and will encourage others to
do so. If there are Critical open bugs in upstream, I will delay the
weekly release until they are closed.
