I'm afraid I've very much lost track of what changes have happened and
what have not. This particularly concerns me due to the much larger
than typical data deletion in this release (much of which I, and other
source data readers, have disagreed with).

It does seem to me that it would be worthwhile releasing the next
version with minimal and non-harmful data changes (ie. just changes
like Fiji) while other things are cleared up.

We also desparately need a non-experimental git repo so we can see
what is going in to the actual releases. In lieu of this, a single
patch of all the data changes since the last release would seem
necessary to perform an effective review.
