1) Scrambling to finish end-of-year stuff, including S8 and S3 reporting

2) AFAIK I have currently done everything others need for end of year,
other than:
    * Opening tickets for initial MOSS milestones
    * Reviewing and responding to draft anticensorship roadmap
    * Code review for late-arriving code, as it arrives.
    * Please let me know asap if you need something not on that list.
3) I'll be storing email not addressed to me personally from Saturday
through my return on Jan 2 or 3. If you need me for something from me
then, please use signal or personal email.
4) Updated release plans: hoping to get (stable) in January,
along with new 0.3.3.x and 0.3.4.x releases, and the first 0.4.0.x
alpha.  Please make sure the network team knows if you consider any
current bug to be a release blocker.
5) S8 looks to be finishing in a good state.

1) S8 Q4 report - looked at what was done by network team and match it
with objectives.

github projects for it.
