One of the items in the Release Checklist is to incorporate GSOC project code and patches which look good from the patch tracker.  It is best to do that early as that will de-stabilize things for a while and we want to get some testing on the new code before sending it out in to the world.

I will try to make a 4.2.2 release ASAP.

I'm afraid that if we incorporate GSoC code and the spreadsheet functions from the I/O package now, then we will not have a new release for at least another 6 months, probably even longer.

Rather than falling into the trap of trying to include and fix everything before the next release I would prefer to move in the direction of more frequent releases with major new features only being added near the beginning of a release cycle. So I propose that we not add any large new chunks of code at this time but focus on fixing what we can for a 4.4.0 release by the end of February.
