Looks like we're on track for branching around the beginning of next week.

  * the x509 branch is on trunk;
  * the heisenbug (actually, several heisenbugs) in ra-test seem to have
    been fixed;
  * Stefan^1 's pin-externals branch has been lazy-consensus'd for merge
    to trunk (some changes still pending, but those don't have to happen
    on the branch);
  * The problem with Python bindings and Swig 3.0.x is, for now, assumed
    to be a bug in Swig itself; I propose we disable support for Swig-3
    for now (Swig-2 still works fine);
  * Ivan and I agreed not to propose to merge the reuse-ra-session
    branch in time for 1.9, we can merge it after the soak period an let
    it marinate a bit on trunk for 1.10;
  * Bert appears to be mostly finished with his (fantastic!) fixes for
    working copy move handling and conflict resolution;
  * buildbots are green.

If there are no further objections, and the pin-externals branch gets
merged soon-ish, I intend to create the 1.9 release branch on Sunday
night or Monday early morning (UTC). Ben has kindly been volunteered to
RM the first 1.9 release candidate
