I suggest to release it end of this week.

winGRASS mainly depends on Martin and his server.

Importantly we need to understand if anything is missing for RC1.
Unless we do not publish 7.8 with Python 3 support, we will be soon
removed from various Linux distros as they start to drop Py2-only
versions (i.e. < 7.8).

In addition, pls _all_ help to add content to
* https://trac.osgeo.org/grass/wiki/Grass7/NewFeatures78
* https://trac.osgeo.org/grass/wiki/Release/7.8.0-News
(and we need to find a convenient way to extract that from GitHub).
