The SDL commit will likely be able to proceed, actually - the schedule
announced by re@ gives us more time before the freeze than I'd first
thought, and I'm testing the SDL patch set now.
GNOME is obviously a much bigger enterprise though. The fact that
you're travelling would be a concern for merging before the release,
but perhaps you feel comfortable that others would be able to take
care of problems in your absence? We may be able to test the patchset
on pointyhat later in the week, depending on how the next exp build
goes. That's probably about the time you're leaving though.
