I think the issues listed under

are (at least for me) the only dealbreakers for 1.0. We have of course
more bugs in the tracker, but I think most do not qualify to hold 1.0 back.

Personally there is only one more ticket, which is actually a regression
from 0.48 iirc, that is nagging me a bit, issue 132. Its not yet
targeted for 1.0 and I'd be ok if it goes into 1.1 or later as well.

You've been very busy in this area lately - thanks a bunch for all your
work! If we don't manage to move most of the contrib/ stuff, then I'm
all for removing it temporarily from the distribution and bring it back
step by step in the upcoming releases. Until then it can peacefully
co-exist just in the source tree.

I hate to ask, but I guess we still have no news on the buildbot front,
right? I need to kick-off the openSUSE stuff again...

Just a note about the string unification - I'm all with you here. I'll
start with the placeholder unification tonight. Need some easy work,
I recently catched a cold, I hope I'm better by the end of the week.
