Ah indeed, and indeed not seen because not sent to xen-devel. Also
to me it doesn't really read like previous release announcements, so
even if I had seen it I would have been in doubt whether this is a pre-
announcement or the actual one (whether it was intentional by Keir
I of course can't tell, but I inherited from him the use of past tense
in such subjects, making absolutely clear that the release has
happened, and isn't e.g. only about to happen).

Since we've got to wait for a push on both trees now again anyway,
I think you could do them if you wanted to. Albeit if I'm to maintain
4.5, I'd prefer no backports to be pushed there yet, until the
4.5.1-pre version update is in place.

I guess I'll wait to see what Konrad and Lars think.
