Well, i did not notice we were not on the dev list...
Anoher option is to not release everything in a single shot (i.e. have separate tags, etc...)

Except of course, we decided some time ago not to release all of the
specs as a single release that way. Definitely something that needs to
be discussed on the dev list.
