A repost when rc1 has been cut is what's been suggested to me.

Additionally, two tweaks have been pointed out off list (documentation
cruft and lack if #ifdef for asm/syscall.h), which I have fixed in my
local and github tree but haven't yet reposted here. I was planning
on just posting v17 when rc1 is cut (unless I've blithely missed it
already) and then trying to pester everyone and anyone who can merge.

Maybe someone more authoritative than me will answer though.
