What about waiting? You wait a couple of months, few more weeks/months won't kill you. :roll:

Hi Nick, would all the current tickets be merged before this release? I noticed that are only about 10 or so tickets pending to be merged for 3.1 as of now. Would these be finalized before the next RC 6 release?

As said before, the only real list is https://tracker.phpbb.com/issues/?filter=12593
Everything else is "nice to have"

I can understand your emotions there. However since phpBB.com is now running on RC5 we just started RC6 so we can fix potential errors that come up.
It won't take very long anymore.
