If I can make a wish then it would be the following:

In the 3.4 branch we should go on with fixing more bugs and integrate 
new/improved localizations.

Then we can name it AOO 3.4.1. Release would be as soon as we can agree 
that the needed bugs are fixed and the then supported languages are done.

In parallel on trunk we can do more new things like integrate more 
(feature) CWSs from the old project, cleanup more license things, push 
the gbuild transition etc.

At the end it would be an AOO 3.5.0. Release could be in summer time (in 
Australia it would be winter, I guess ;-) ).

What do others think?
