I agree that new features should go to master. I wanted to find out, for
when we write the NEWS entries and other docs, and for general tracking
of progress, what deficiencies (unfinished features and bugs) remain.

Sorry for letting bad formatting slip through.  I checked the code but I
guess wasn't thorough.  Would you recommend a specific tool for the
formatting review?

My goal with that question was actually to find out *where* the
developer docs should go, not whether they are necessary.  I think we
all agree on the necessity.  I can try a first stab at them when I know
in what context they'll exist.

Regarding NEWS specifically, Aurélien is absent at the moment and will
be back next week. Maybe Philipp would like to provide the NEWS entries?
I will write them if neither of them is able or if it can't wait until
next week.
