I did notice the last few XMLTV releases have been around the end of 
February just in time for the Ubuntu feature freeze :)

Sounds like a jolly good idea wonder why we don't do that for MythTV!  😛

As for v34 I've washed my hand of it and just let the others fight it 
out. The latest was we are going to attempt a release before the 
February 29th feature freeze but it's far from a unanimous decision so I 
wouldn't be surprised if it's a half-hearted attempt with some stuff 
missing like release notes, web site announcements etc but I could be wrong.

The project really misses someone with authority to push stuff along 
especially now Stuart A. appears to have has gone :(
