I was happy a few RCs ago, and I mailed to say so. If most of the
changes are in licensing files, well, whatever.

I haven't tried to install the current RC. The thing I'd want to check
is federation, but unless anything has changed in the last couple
years, I expect it to be a nightmare to set up. And without manually
trying that out, I don't have any more comments to add.

Thats my thoughts, since you asked for them.
