Sure.  Thanks for the entry.

master would be better.  I meant 0.18.2 branch temporary use for this
release only and I'll rebase it against master (though non-FF commits
are not allowed on git.sv.gnu.org).

Not yet decided, but I think it would be good to follow the existing
policy (if any).

Same here.  I'd like to follow your policy.  I looked at the commits
around 0.18.1 release and just mimicked them.

Right, thanks for pointing this out.

Yes, it seems that I forgot to do the steps after "make distcheck" in
