Well, no-one has mentioned anything...

I will schedule this for the week starting August the 9th.  This is 
after the KDE 4.5 release but before the first beta for GNOME 3.0.  It 
will also give us plenty of time to clean out [testing] and perhaps get 
that [staging] repo running?

It will also happen to correspond with the release of this awesome 
python 3 book: 
https://www.packtpub.com/python-3-object-oriented-programming/book . 
(Hi Dusty!)

Does this sound reasonable to everyone or have I missed a major release 
that this will block?
