Yes.  The build infrastructure is still not ok.  For example, if I
delete a PDF file, say, `notation.pdf`, right now it gets *not*
rebuilt!  Similarly, if I change a documentation string in an SCM file
like `define-markup-commands.scm`, the documentation doesn't get
rebuilt, either.  I consider this fundamental flaws.

For me, a freeze can only start if we agree that nothing fundamental
has to be changed or added.  IMHO, we are far away from such a state.
