We're past that point in time now and the release/1.0.29 branch is in
Code Freeze.  As per milestone[1] description, only "fixes for hardware
destroying bugs, compile failures, fixing completely unusable backends
and documentation fixes are allowed" now.

That issue (and merge request) have been dealt with since.

Nothing new has popped up, so far, that needs taking care of for 1.0.29
as far as I'm concerned but should you bump into something while testing
don't hesitate to submit an issue[2] or bring it up here on the list.

The above re translation updates still stands.  Submissions are welcome
as merge requests (preferred) as well as patches.

# Totally unrelated to the Code Freeze, I also cleaned up the artifacts
# of our old (pre 2019-09-01) CI pipelines.  This removed some 230 of
# the source tarballs that were still lingering around, roughly halving
# their number.  At present, snapshot tarballs older than 90 days are
# nuked.  Build logs are kept and releases are uploaded elsewhere[3] as
# a copy to preserve them for eternity/posterity.  Just FYI.
