Has there been any progress on these questions ?

There is no 'stable' branch right now (no matter the spelling), so
people don't know what reference code to take if they want to set
up a development branch, or to merge 'new' (accepted, but not yet
released) libraries in.

Pleeaase ! (Any decision is better than no decision...)

(Also, somewhat unrelated,
 indicates the 1.34.1 release as open and '3 months late', and there is
 no place discussing what to expect from 1.35 in terms of new features,
 additional libraries, etc.)
