Well, it builds on the bots. :-)

Nope, but that was mostly because I had to leave in a hurry. I think
it makes sense to tag our first try, so I've just tagged it now as

Yep, that's the idea. The branch is there, but it may move to a more
recent trunk revision later this week. This step is important because
the branch is necessary for the setup of build-bots and internal
builds by Q&A teams.

But I see your point, you prefer to have it "officially" called tp1
once it has been tested at least internally. OK, makes sense.

So we'll wait a bit more before calling it our first tp1.
