* Completed Action Items:
    + research / seek a saner access2base solution for master (Stephan)

    + look at fillattribute branch wrt. fdo#78908 & fdo#79158 (Miklos)
        [ merged to master; discussed back-porting to 4.3 ...
          input appreciated from Michael S. Easiest to revert the
          first part from 4.3.
          Prefer to revert half-finished version for 4.3 (Caolan)
