Hmmmmmmm, ok, my suggestion, let's do both what Martin and Thomas suggests, 
let's revert Andras patches and tag/release a RC2 today/tomorrow and delay the 
4.12.0 release a bit more than a week and release on the 30th.

This way Andras has a week and a bit to re-fix their commits if it is really 
to have them.
