There's a tag "2007.0", which matches the actual release DVD, and there's a "branch2007" which has had a few bug fixes applied (mostly bugfixes in xetex, also apparently some security fixes in dviljk). What I suggest is that I review xetex bug-fixes since the 2007 release, and back-port the most important ones to branch2007 in TeX Live; we can also include the \suppressfontnotfounderror or whatever it's called, for the sake of the new context. But we won't try to include any of the major new features (like Graphite font support, or the new ICU version, etc), which would make for a massive patch. This would give you a "xetex 0.996-patch2" in Lenny (what's in branch2007 is currently 0.996-patch1), should work for both context and non-context users, and should be non-invasive as far as the rest of TL is concerned. If I do this, and create a tag "2007.1" in TL with the updated branch2007 version, are you able to use this as the base for your package? I presume you don't use the actual binaries from TL Master/ bin anyway, so what matters is what we have in the source tree.
