I've seen your efforts on GitHub and they are much appreciated.
Most pull requests are held back currently for preparation of a 2.2.0 release finally.
Many of them will push the master state back to alpha and may bring issues and instability.
Because I'm the only maintainer currently and my limited time resources I can't do release preparation and merging in parallel.
The community uses release candidates from master branch as stable version, so we need the release first before we can return master to development branch.
You can join our Zulip chat
, which is the preferred place for communication. There we can evaluate if it is worth to change plans or how you can support the release process.
