At least from those responding on the list there seem to be few people
running git master (you?, me) atm. THis would not change with a release
and an upload to sid I suppose since those require not yet merged
patches. That said I'm happy to upload a git snapshot to experimental
(and even do so frequently) for ease of testing.

I hope we can finish at least either davdroid or CalDavZAP/InfCloud
support in the next release. It would be great to figure out what's
missing for that (I'm going to check the later as soon as I get around
to).

Cheers,
