The 1.34.0 branch creation was a long while ago and as has been remarked
earlier progress on getting it release ready has been slow to
non-existent depending on the particular point of view. This is not to
say that there wasn't a significant amount of work done but if we ever
want to release it we either have to scale back the requirements or try

The next step is putting out a beta. Here is what I think needs to be
done before we can call it beta.

- Fix regressions with respect to the prior release. The regression
tests still show a fair amount of "broken" fields.

- Update the "Getting Started" and build system documentation to reflect
the change to build.v2.

- Make v2 the default build system (is this already so?).

- Fix *all* of the filename too long issues.

- Fix as much of the inspection issues as possible.

All in all the inspection report shows a frightening number of issues.
What is our stance with respect to license/copyright missing?

At this point I think it is unrealistic to set a date for the beta as
far as I can see. I will set a date as soon as we made some significant
progress. If I can somehow stick your name to the outstanding issues
expect to be bugged from now on. I guess a volunteer for the
documentation issues would be very much appreciated.

If anyone feels like not being able to make progress due to some
dependency please shoot me an email.
