This is doable.

A couple of modules will need to be added to bioperl 1.2.2 to be in 
sync with bioperl-run-1-2-0.
In particular:

The following modules was added after the bioperl1.2 was released
and is required for bioperl-run-1-2-0

1) Bio::Tools:Promoterwise
2) Bio::Factory::AnalysisI
3) Bio::AnalysisI

All tests pass for me with bioperl-1.2.2rc1 after adding these modules.

Some bug fixes also have happened after the bioperl-run-1-2-0 release, 
should I create a bug fix branch , bioperl-run-branch-1-2 ?
