[pmwiki-users] Any hope for 2.2.0 stable release?

I believe that many have been using the current "beta" for a long time. 
I think the most expeditious way of dealing with this is for Patrick to 
declare the current beta is complete, and forward any unfinished items 
to the next version.

IOW just remove the term "beta" from the release.

Then we can discuss moving forward.
