Yes to: we are "running late"
BUT (1): or do I miss something?
* no written release schedule
* no written feature plan
BUT (2):
* many forms are unusable in respect to usability / ergonomic - trunk r 4171
** most name fields are to short (1366*768 pixel) 
** missing unified layout 
* nothing is tested
* nothing is translated 
** https://translations.launchpad.net/openobject-addons/trunk shows only
