No, no, no! If I have the time in the next two weeks, or in early July,
I may put together a new 3.1.5 RPM that has some of the better patches
in it, and you can rebuild that on Mandrake to add to our collection.
(Note that none of those patches included documentation updates to
describe the added features, so none are "release-ready".) If I'm
really bored, I may even include rundig and max_page_buttons patches.

Because the more time we waste on 3.1.x, the less time we have to work
on 3.2. I don't want to make 3.1 seem a more attractive option than
3.2, and discourage potential beta testers. Getting good, solid, and
documented features in 3.2 should be our priority, otherwise we'll just
keep pushing back the release date.
