Mmm. I was thinking also about things like updating the savannah
page and so on (do you need to be a 'project admin' for that?)

Yeah, I guess a branch is the right thing here.

What do we want to put into 1.3, then? Looking in the BTS, I don't
think any of the bugs are particularly critical. So my vote would
be for 'release 1.3 more or less as the head of CVS is now', and
then go for a 1.4 hopefully not too long after that, with some of
the other bugs fixed (inc from Maildir, tempfiles, better MIME
support, maybe).
