Following up on the discussion, and trying to correctly summarise the
other views I've seen in other threads:

 - The beta will not wait for the TDB2 issue to be sorted, but this is
being addressed as an urgent matter, and is expected to make beta2.
 - Jeremy has promised to review my patches early this week.
 - I need to work on making s3fs the default for new provisions
 - Steve's particular issues are being addressed in Bugzilla with Jeremy

Therefore I expect to make the release late next week.  If there are
objections, or I've misunderstood, can make the next release (the first
with s3fs) alpha21, but I really do think it is high time for a beta.
