My read was that it was more that people were just getting exhausted,
and not necessarily that folks were converging. (Also, Willy is
currently on vacation.)

I'm happy to be wrong, bu the patches haven't changed since the merge
window opened, and it's not clear what *needs* to change before it can
be accepted at the next merge window.

Given how long it took for DAX to converge (years and years and years
and *multiple* LSF/MM's), I'm not as optimistic that Folios is
converge and is about to be merged at the next merge window. But
again, I'm happy to be proven wrong.
