This is a key question for Lubuntu right now.

Agreed -- and the simplest way to prevent this is to release often
enough that distributions do not feel any need to package from git :)

Which is both fairly old, and also "bad timing" regarding Ubuntu
releases, being only about two weeks before the Ubuntu 10.10 final release.

SUGGESTION: Let's test the current "almost-0.9.9" codebase, fix any
major issues found in the next week or so, then bump the SONAME version
and release it before the end of June 2011.  Can we do that?

Since some testers seem to need packaged versions to test, I'll look at
creating a test unofficial package from git for them, so we get slightly
more testing.  Another way to go would be to release a 0.9.9~rc1
tarball, and a corresponding one for libfm, if that is preferred --
doing that means noone has to use git head for packaging :)
