I don't think this is a good idea.  There's an upcoming security release
that will make such a release obsolete just three weeks after:


Would it not be better to just wait and release 1.11 with these security
fixes?  I also still see a large number of ARM patches coming in from
Andrew which suggests the branch isn't as stable as you say.  It especially
worries me that this last hsdis patch was pushed to the release branch
when it was still under discussion.

I don't see any benefit in rushing this release.  Let's take time and make
a worthwhile release.
