Hi Seth,

I think we should go ahead with the final 8.2.0 release, even without 
those items you mentioned (as so much effort has been already put into 
the release, as tracked by that release page that I've been 
maintaining).  I propose the following schedule:

   - Feature freeze:  Fri. January 5, 2024
   - 8.2-beta: Fri. January 12, 2024
   - 8.2-rc1: Fri. January 19, 2024
   - 8.2 (final): Fri. January 26, 2024

That would give everyone a few weeks through the holidays to tackle any 
lingering tasks on their plates.

I'll also do a MapCache release then, to help packagers.

Thanks, and merry Christmas everyone,
