I'd like to get 3.1 out the door in the near future.

Please try to take a look at JIRA items targeted for svn head; 3.1, and "unscheduled" and do the following things.
(a) close things that are already fixed or no longer relevant
(b) schedule everything that is unscheduled for the appropriate target
(c) if there are things that are targeted at 3.1 that should be deferred to 3.1.1 please move them.

Once we do a little housekeeping we'll have a better sense of what needs to get done before we can release.
