As of now, we're in Stage 2 on the mainline.
This was scheduled for July 1st, but it made sense to delay until 3.4.1
As a reminder, Stage 2 means that major changes (the kind that would
normally be done on a branch) should not be merged in after this point.
However, less invasive changes and ehnancements are fine until we reach
Stage 3; there's no requirement that changes fix bugs or regressions.
I'm targeting September 6th for Stage 3. Stage 3 may go on for quite
some time, if the regression lists are looking long, so it would be good
to get started on fixing regressions even now.
The LNO merge is ongoing, and will continue. The LNO folks have been
kindly chopping up there stuff into digestible bits, and they should not
be penalized for that; if they had tried to check it all in at once that
would have been worse.
I'm sure there's more stuff out there that people would like to get
merged in, but the next release will already have tree-ssa and LNO, so
that's a lot of excitement already. :-)
