Yes, so the release is actually worthless - releasing without anyone
telling is like writing a book and never publishing it.

Yes, so why not just publish the docs and release? What are we *really*
waiting for? I really doubt that the documentation situation will get
better the longer we wait. So let's just use what is there - we will see
if it's sufficient or not.

Once i had the dream that we could release 2.2 in 2005, then i had this
very realistic dream of releasing it by the end of 2006 - but in the end
these were all just dreams, so i stopped dreaming.

Now all you really need are some more committers who would like to
support this plan - and that's the really hard part. One indication of
interest is the very low participation in this thread....
