My workflow is largely the same as Andi's -- in that I'm using patches that
have already been nominated for other stable releases and putting them
on the 34-lt (longterm) as appropriate. Are you interested in also doing the
same thing for 34-lt (i.e. you generating a 34 specific, pre-tested patchset
instead of me doing the backports from other stable trees?)

Thanks,
Paul.
