Yes, I will go for adding links in 2.4. I even found an example in the 
gnucash-utils makefile to have the links become part of the distribution 
tarball. That should be easy for everyone.

So with this, there's no reason to do a simultaneous release anymore. So 
we can consider them independently. I still keep the documentation 
release planned as soon as the documentation editors tell me it's a go.

As for GnuCash itself, the last stable release was mid-July. Are there 
sufficient patches to the 2.4 branch to warrant another release already ?
