Are these release candidates going to be formally released for testing or
only tagged in git as development milestones?

Bjarke Istrup Pedersen asked the same question on the 02/02/2012 without
answer and I think other distribution maintainers of hostap software could
benefit to know also. For myself, I have to see how the hostap release fits
into the Debian/Ubuntu cycle, and the lack of end user testing of release
candidates make me a bit more nervous than usual.

Thanks, Kel.
