This is today! So read on...

Short update: I am going to wait a couple more days before branching, to
settle release content and exceptions. Branching is hence on Jan, 18th

Other than the protocol changes (from Amar), I did not receive any
requests for features that are making it to the release. I have compiled
a list of features based on patches in gerrit that are open, to check
what features are viable to make it to 4.0. This can be found here [3].

NOTE: All features, other than the ones in [3] are being moved out of
the 4.0 milestone.

I need the following contributors to respond and state if the feature in
[3] should still be tracked against 4.0 and how much time is possibly
needed to make it happen.

- Poornima, Amar, Jiffin, Du, Susant, Sanoj, Vijay

As of now, I am adding a few from the list in [3] for further review
attention as I see things evolving, more will be added as the point
above is answered by the respective contributors.
