Continue the 1.10 alphas?

Just asking...

As I understand it, we paused the issuing of 1.10 alpha releases because
we considered that the final 1.10 release will need to address the SHA1
collision issue otherwise it won't be considered a viable release.

It seemed reasonable to pause for a bit while the SHA1 issue was worked
on, and Stefan2 has done some work on that. But currently it seems that
there is nobody doing any further work on it.

We could continue waiting, or maybe now we should resume the alpha
testing of the new features (conflict resolution), and let the SHA1 work
be fixed as and when someone is motivated to do so (before or after
1.10). It seems to me that sometimes in open source we need to get on
with doing what we can do, and just trust that someone else will do the
rest.

Thoughts?
