Please consider this my "vote"/request/preference that releases be
"early and often" more so than "when it's ready". There will always be
one more thing to clean up.

The Debian package has finally landed (with a new package upload coming
any hour now). I'd love to reduce the number of already-upstreamed
patches I'm carrying, which a 1.0.1 release would help with. Also, there
have been quite a few other changes in master, some of them important
bug fixes:

$ git diff -M NTPsec_1_0_0 | diffstat -s
 205 files changed, 7273 insertions(+), 4906 deletions(-)

I'm a big fan of "always stable master" and time based releases.
