We have been holding off on post-1.1.1 feature development for a long time now - on the grounds that TLSv1.3 was just around the corner etc and the release was close - and then we formed a release plan which we pushed back a week.
It is long overdue that we get to start moving those other things forward in my view. We had planned to start moving around a pile of stuff for FIPS related items - and keeping master locked for API changes really works against that. There are a large range of PRs which we pushed off as must-wait-for-post-1.1.1 and those are things that remain stalled as long as we keep master locked down. The release for 1.1.1 should be pretty close to "complete" as such - looking at the plans - as with no new features going in the work remaining should be relatively staight forward. Rich's suggestions I think tend to indicate more work going into the release that planned - and we had said we were creating this branch - and deviating from that at the last minute isn't really how we shuold be making decisions as a project. Some stuff that would normally be in a banch now isn't ... as Richard noted in the PR. Tim.
