ok, so let's just conclude it then...:

-> It changed from potentially illegal to "perhaps these will fail", so not
    critical for the release

(meanwhile fixed: #1727, #1946, #1554)

-> enhancement, so not critical for the release

> #1936b: Reword "Protocol" button as "Log file" (strings + docs only)

> #854: building addons on Mac (assume we can handle post-release in pkg'ing)
-> unclear state (to me)
