When you see my proposed schedule for 3.4.1 I have proposed to start dev
builds for 3.4.1 with the beginning of June. We are working on setting
up some local machines that allow us to automate this a little bit. I
hope we can start at least next week with this.

And I agree to Ariel that it make sense to start with dev builds for 3.5
(trunk) as well. And ideally we can use the binaries from the build bots
directly. As I learned today we changed the configure flags already and
we should check if we can these builds directly. Or if not we should
check what we need to fix to make them usable. That would of course make
things easier.
