Bad idea, as then some dependent packages could go out stable without
all the packages they need.

Nope... side tag won't push them out, unless we just merge them into the
main tag, but then they are bypassing testing.

All the other ones are going to need at least python36, so no, they
should all be in one big update. Otherwise some of them could go stable
and not have the python36 yet.

I'd say at least 2 weeks?

Build as usual, but ask someone to edit the update and remove the
previous one and add in the new one.

Thanks for building and coordinating everything!
