Until then 90k1 Should be good enough and be our stable.
It seems to be very advisable to produce updates for 90k1 in order to:

- learn about repos
- enhance security
- show that BLAG is still alive

110k, we can put our highest priority objective for the moment into

some funds for the server. Please everybody raise whatever you can.
