Fixing that one bug triggered another bug, updating the buildbot to
Fedora 29 showed a bug and extra testing with gold showed yet another
issue. But everything looks pretty good now. Despite (or maybe thanks
to) the extra fixes going in I feel pretty good about the next release.

I have prepared the source code for the next release and would like to
release it on Friday unless some blocker bug is found before then.

Cheers,

Mark
