A short update of the upcoming release:

There are still outstanding issues that prevent going forward with the 
release (see 
https://docs.einsteintoolkit.org/et-docs/Release_coordination for 
current information).

The most important are:

- Some McLachlan testsuites are still failing. Peter wasn't able to find 
  time to look at it, and won't have for the coming week. We need a
  volunteer to work on these. This is ticket 1995.
- ExternalLibraries/MPI prevents Cactus from linking if built from the 
  thorn-sources, on (at least some) Linux systems.
  The issue is described in ticket 2049.
- Both SphericalHarmonicReconGen tests fail, for at least apparently 
  different reasons (but since one is a segfault you never know)

Otherwise, the tests seem to run fine, on the few machines I've tested 
them on. We obviously need to test a lot more machines, which is also 
still out-standing.
