I thought that Jesse's plan was, barring unforeseen circumstances, to make a
5.12.2 release about 3 months after 5.12.1

However, in the interests of smoothness and smoking, I don't think that it's a
good idea to wait until near the release date before merging lots of changes
to the branch. Yet, right now that's what seems to be happening - everyone is
leaving it to someone else to consider what should be merged into maint-5.12,
and consequently it's rather "special biologist word", and would-be smokers
are idle.

Does regular merge reviewing (and regular patch reviewing and regular bug
reviewing) really not happen unless a pumpking does it, or a pumpking gently
but repeatedly cajoles others to do it?
