The date on this is wrong.  It’s Feb 5, not Jan 5.  I’d like to make a concerted push to get another ack beta out this week and aim for a final version before their freeze.

Dear Andy and Rob,

together with the Debian Perl Team (Cc'ed) I maintain ack's Debian
package.

I currently wonder if there's a chance to get Ack 2.16 out before
christmas? Because in that case, I'd be able to get 2.16 into the next
Debian Stable release.

The freeze for the release is on 5th of January 2017 and to be
included, new upstream releases must have migrated from Debian
Unstable to Debian Testing before that date. Given the 10 days
migration period, the last chance for an upload would be on
2016-12-24, preferable earlier so that there's a chance to fix
potential issues in time.

And since I already prepared the migration from the package name
"ack-grep" to solely "ack" based on the 2.15_0x release, it would also
ease that transition. (Doing the migration based on the 2.14 release
would at least cause a little bit of backporting headache.)

Kind regards, Axel
