Since the whole point of the snap release is to get the FinTS product registration feature to German users we should indeed make sure that it works before releasing it.

Unfortunately I'm fully engaged next weekend so the release may have to wait until the following weekend, September 7. I don't think there's much point in doing another release 3 weeks later so we'll just call it the regular release and delivered early.
