    5 0. Is everybody happy to release 3.3.2 using the current RC2 (at HEAD of the 3.3-release branch)? Also, is everybody happy that this is the last 3.3.x release, providing no showstopping bugs suddenly show up?

    9 2. Item generation. Magnate intends to implement an affix system for good and great items, along the lines described in http://angband-dev.blogspot.com. This will fix #587 and #720 and will obviate #1179. Before doing this, he would like to sort out a number of issues related to object properties: #1182, #1039, #1415, #1531, #1015. Before all these comes #1540. UPDATE: this work is now well underway at http://github.com/magnate/angband/tree/affixes. All changes which can be made without breaking savefiles and ID-by-use of egos have been done, so it's speak now or forever fix my bugs! Some specific questions on which I'd like feedback are:

    1010* I have removed of the special/normal artifact distinction, so I think we can now remove the INSTA_ART flag if we can find another way to provide flavours to artifact jewelry. 
    1111* But the new make_artifact() code has a crash bug which I haven't traced yet. I'm not sure if it happens when trying to generate any artifact, or only one whose base item is predetermined. Any help appreciated. 
     
    1616* Is there any reason (other than preserving the currently suboptimal ID-by-use) to retain the entire affix struct for every affix on an object? I am inclined just to keep the indeces in o_ptr->affix[].
