I personally think that:
o I want to incorporate PAO package into -currnet gradually. For
example, I think "shutdown -x" hack, sn driver, etc. are easily
incorporated into -current.
o pccard stuff is very premature when I started working on it, but
currently, it evolved and it should be developed in open fashion.
(and I want to concentrate upon more premature stuff like I18N
sysinstall, new config system, CardBus support, etc.)
o Of course I'm planning to move to 3.0-current. I'm working on 2.2
because I want to advertise FreeBSD to Japanese market (about half
of PC's in Japan is laptop), and I have only one laptop for
develpment. I got a new laptop (Toshiba Libretto 50 CT US version)
last week and I'm planning to install 3.0 to the old one.
I have ten days vacation from next week (sorry, I'll be away from net
for a week because of it), and I want to work on incorporating part of
PAO stuff to 3.0-current in this vacation.
