I'll make a seperate post on that.

It has a basic UI, just no ajax interface. Nobody appears to be doing
that either, so we're going to have to postpone that until 3.5.

Nobody worked on this to my knowledge.

Hasn't happened.

Hasn't happened and can just as easily be postponed until 3.5, if ever.

These need to be fixed still.

All the unittests still require our old default workflow and nobodu has
the resources to fix that, so we're going to have to stick with our old

Bug, should be fixed.

All behavioural changes very late in the release process, probably 3.5
stuff now.

Needs a toggle somewhere.

Already done I think

Needs to happen soon or becomes 3.5 material.

Needs to happen soon or becomes 3.5 material.

Done at the sprint.

Fixed at the sprint, not merged yet.

Fixed at the sprint I think, may not be merged yet.

Probably too late for 3.0.

Too late for 3.0

3.0.x minor are for bug and security fixes, not feature changes.
