AIUI, this is the plan we decided on.  So:

- Someone (presumably Bruce) needs to run pgindent.  Any reason to
wait any longer on that?
- Someone will need to branch the tree after the wrap and stamp it
9.1devel.  Who is doing that?
- We have three (fairly minor) remaining open items that should
ideally be dealt with.

They are:

* bump catalog version for plpython3u change? Use RTLD_GLOBAL? -- I
don't immediately know what the bit about RTLD_GLOBAL is referring to,
and it's not obvious to me that anyone cares about the catversion
issue enough to argue about it.  So maybe there's nothing to do here
at all.  Anyhow, we should make a decision.
* normalize use of LDFLAGS - I believe Tom is dealing with this.  His
proposal seems sensible to me, although as demonstrated just this
week, I am not an expert on the idiosyncracies of linking on different
platforms.  This doesn't strike me as a show-stopper for beta3.
* Fix log_temp_files units - I believe the consensus here is to revert
Simon's comment/doco changes and instead make the behavior match the
documentation in both 8.4 and HEAD.  I have been assuming Simon would
take care of this since it was his patch, but we're running out of
time.  This one is probably good to get fixed before we ship a beta
documenting a behavior we intend to change.  If necessary I can pick
this up...
