Thank you Elod and Sean. In Manila, we went through the exercise of
seeing if we missed out any bug fixes for stable/queens and addressed
most of them. However, there's one additional fix  due that would
be nice to get in. We hope to get that in in the next couple of days
and propose a final release with that commit hash. Hope that's okay..
