I've stuck January 16 on as a tentative release date for 3.1.0. Of course we're still block by the FedX CQ's final approval, but perhaps sticking a release date on things and pointing at that will help get things moving.
I'd like to get develop in a state ready for a first milestone build before Christmas. This does not have to be feature-complete but I'd like FedX working and documented and the ElasticSearch store documented as well, at the very least.
Let's see if we can make this happen.
