No, there's no "Formal" process in that regard. If you can report
succes with the fixes that are currently applied on the trunk, than
that is what we'd like to hear :-)

Well, this needs to be confirmed *before* I make a release. So, if
there's no way right now to test this, it needs to be established. The
release process cannot be a surogate for a test process.
