+1. You two have convinced me that 3.3 can be abandoned and we release
3.4.0 out of trunk but I would want to see something that makes this
major. That might be the ipv6 support for sa-update natively or
something else completely. And it could delay it but these release date
will hopefully get a fire under people.

My opinion is to wait on beta and go through bugzilla to make a list of
bugs to get finalized so we have a list of "goals" for the 3.4.X
release. Then people can start the commit frenzy.

Alex, what are your thoughts on NOT creating a 3.4 branch and continuing
with trunk for development? You seem to be pro the concept above and it
makes sense that if we switch to rtc on trunk say 1 week or so before a
release date as defined in the ReleaseGoals, everyone is happy.
