Expect the unexpected :P

best version for release is 3.2 (even 3.0.4 is probably to early). I need
to review latest changes in trunk for generics to correct library
(package?) code, because few elements in library are temporary (to
workaround bugs)  see

3.0.2 is probably too late as we're already in RC preparation phase. And as
you said 3.0.4 might be a bad idea as well if you want to rely on trunk

For now please create tickets, though not necessarily for each commit, but
maybe for commits that belong together. Also please check the changes I've
made (they're mentioned both in the commit as well as the issue).

Maybe you should add an "experimental" modifier to these types so that one
knows that they're unstable.
And that's another reason to keep this in trunk only: once it's released it
would be advisable to keep breaking changes to a minimum (not that they
can't happen at all as my changes for packages have shown).

subdirectory for easily maintenance?

Let's see for a while how much work you'll still have left and then we can
talk about this again.
