Gave the final round of eyeballing to the list of topics that are still cooking, to categorize them into the ones to include in the upcoming release, and the ones to defer. Decided to postpone the streaming checkout topic to the next cycle, but did some benchmark to make sure it is sound.
Commented on 6 topics.
Queued 6 patches from 3 people.
Merged 12 topics to 'master' branch, to include in the next release.
Merged 6 topics to 'maint' branch, to include in the maintenance release.
