Well, I actually need this release asap.  Users can quite safely migrate
from 2.3.x to 2.4.x, but switching to 3.0.x is a much bigger change with
lots of incompatibilites.  So users in need for OSGi r5 would really
benefit from it.
I'm planning for a 2.4.0 release as soon as the snapshot dependencies can
be resolved.
