Now I understand your concern... As far as I know, upgrade tests now
pass with 10.2 trunk, though need some manual testing steps. Looks like
we are making progress on upgrade policy for metadata. Someone suggested
a Wiki to capture knowledge so far. That is a great idea. With the
original freeze date for 10.2 being changed, it is my personal feeling
that this "blockage" of metadata work should be lifted. In my opinion,
the blockage to solve pending issues made sense when we were real close
to the proposed 10.2 timeframe. Not anymore. Also proposing patches and
solutions would make us understand issues so we could evolve the proposal.

Any one have objections to continuing metadata work now? I agree with
you the blockage is bad...
