Keep in mind that 1.2.1 is unchanged. Fixes are added to 1.2.2a, and
due to a change in 1.2 (that was *a bad idea*!!!), you need to set the version
number to 1.2.2a to see any updates.

The first update of 1.2.2a fixes this wrong change.

We should release 1.2.2 just to get this problem fixed and update updates again.

Another thing I would like is to not have one rolling release for stable. 

that is, there is

1.2 update 12XXX

And nothing else, fixes get pushed, images build by Hudson, no releases on that level.

There is no bug reported in 1.2 that is not already in 1.1:

Maybe we need a dedicated stable team? From my financing, it would be hard
to justify working purely on 1.2... I can work on 1.3, because we want to change
the system to be something really great. But maintaining 1.2 is hard to justify as
a researcher....
