First, I sent the message to the wrong list. Aargh! :(

Second, the packagers are always the ones who release new packages. All we need is a decision, from Tim or as a team, that certain bug fixes are deemed sufficient to constitute a point release. After such a decision packagers will need to backport any related patches if they so desire. The problem is not manpower, just decisions. :)
