In my opinion, delay that until we have most of the pending important

Delay creating the 3.4 branch until just shortly before a release,
let's get the remaining fixes first. I doubt anyone will do any 'future
developement' stuff in the near future, so branching now and
fixing issues on two tracks in parallel would be a nuisance.

Right. Besides fixing tickets, this triage should be now the first goal.

Identify and prioritize these.

Right, the blockers IMO. The ipv6 for sa-update is now ready (Bug 6654).
The sa-update state transitions to avoid frequent downloads from mirrors
on misconfigured sites should be a priority (Bug 6655).

It's not too bad if we miss the target date by a week or two, as long
as we get a ball rolling.
