I would add: Once 1.0.x is released, and new development is occuring in
1.1.x (or whatever), *please* continue to support 1.0.x for bugfixes.

The current situation is that all but the very very latest distros ship
0.99.x, and nobody can get any support for this because 1.0rc* is
around. This is a very bad situation, because the whole point of using a
distro that contains the app you want is so that you don't have to build
custom versions from source, or install RPMs/whatever from a source
outside your distro.
