Hi all, 

quite some packages were un-stabilized across the tree recently. 

In general that is in my opinion a good thing if it helps us keep up, in 
particular where many arches are involved.

What's the general opinion on re-stabilizing things on *amd64* only?

I would say that maintaining a larger stable tree is comparatively easy there, 
since everyone of us devs is running (I guess) an amd64 machine and can 
stabilize own packages.

Background, I tried to locally emulate www.g.o using jekyll, and ran into 
troubles because lots of dev-ruby/* lost stable keywords. Newest ~arch didn't 
do the job, so I needed to figure out the config of www.g.o (corresponding to 
former stable) first...
