Not freezing because it's not ready. There are 238 pages that are
completely unreviewed for 3.2. Every page needs to be reviewed for
technical accuracy, because software changes could affect any one
of them.

There were pretty big changes in System Settings, including Online
Accounts, Region and Language, Color (documented, could use review),
Network (Proxy), Power, and Wacom Graphics Tablets. There might have
been more. It needs review.

The user menu changed, in particular the chat/notification status.
Some notifications changed. We have a persistent notification for
mounted devices. That may change how we tell people to interact
with devices, in particular eject.

Then there's Contacts. We might end up skipping it this cycle, but
that will make the Online Accounts stuff very weird. "You can use
these accounts for contacts. What's that? We're not telling you!"
Then again, documents is mentioned in OA, and release-team said
that Documents is a tech preview, and we shouldn't touch it.

By the way, Online Accounts has a pretty big impact on the Empathy
help, which is now tragically outdated.

So, yeah, lots to do still.
