We already have this 1.6.1 milestone in the roadmap. Depending how fast 
we can sort out these tickets, I would even vote to delay them for 
1.6.2. We really need a release again ASAP. There are enough unreleased 
changes on release_1_6 already.

Diffing tags/release_1_6_0 with branches/release_1_6:
   * Fixed postflight script (we should also do new pkg installers)
   * port lint recognizes modelines
   * port load/unload (isn't this a new feature which should go with a
     major release?)
   * port platform (the same, new feature?)
   * configure.pipe

I think these alone would make a good 1.6.1 release.

Bugfixes also go to trunk but will be merged back to release_1_6 :-)

Categorizing the tickets filed against our base code in milestones for 
1.6.1, 1.6.2, ... and 1.7.0 would be a good start.
