Two months. 

I could *manage* earlier than this, but I'd rather not.

I talked to justdave on IRC this morning and he said that such an estimate
is mostly compatible with how long 2.18 is *likely* to take in real time to
get out ("probably 3 to 4 months yet though", with the admission that it
could be sooner).

So, such an estimate should be fine, I think. The fact that it's "by far
the #1 support request" is irrelevant; most people aren't going to upgrade
until there's a new stable release anyway, so an answer of "Oh, mail
configuration is *much* easier in 2.17.5" isn't helpful to lots (the
majority?) of people.

I use PGP; you should use PGP too... if only to piss off John Ashcroft
