It is well tested. Because it is well tested and currently much more stable than bleeding, I am also in favor of just releasing it. We shouldn't put more work into 1.7.9-jumbo-8. But we also shouldn't just "throw away" what we have done so far. We may announce that we aim to release a 1.8.0-jumbo-1 soon (but who knows how long that will take). Frank
