Agree - good and to the point.

I think we decided it on this list and that it includes exactly what is
in the beta! :-) Doug has taken quite some time/effort to post on the
updates we wanted to include before going into beta/gamma of 3.4 and the
basic intention behind it all was (also discussed on the list) to simply
get 3.4 out he door since it includes all the 3.3 alpha stuff (without
Modules of course) and more and we wanted to get a "quick release" so
that we can take a breath and start the real work in 3.5.

Well, currently the Harvesting process is more or less "down" but run
temporarily by Doug and Scott in tandem. I don't think the squeakfixes
pages are maintained currently. We do have plans on making a new good
tool for doing harvesting etc (package centric) but that is still slated
for 3.5 I think.

Please correct me if anything above is "wrong".
