That would be helpful.

Yeah, that'd work.
I'm wondering what our best merge strategy is here. I'm inclined to
think we're best off fixing all the labels on the eapi-3 branch (even
if we can't get them displayed or used for named references just yet),
rebasing that onto master (not much has diverged) once we have the
go-ahead from the Council either next meeting or the one after
(probably...) and then doing the cheat-sheet with EAPI 3 included on top
Or were you particularly desperate to get the cheat-sheet in for EAPI 2?
