As release manage for the Evergreen 2.9 release, I decided to postpone yesterday's planned alpha release pending some resolution of two new Launchpad bugs:
Both of these affect the conditional negative balances features, and I
thought it better to wait for some progress on those fronts rather than
releasing something that will change quite a bit in behavior in a few
Furthermore, the release notes for the conditional negative balance
feature have not been rolled out, yet, as those notes also depend upon
what happens with the above two bugs.
