Default [Q] Major Gmail (android app) sync issues?

There seems to be a major Gmail sync issue going on for the past week, ONLY with respect to the Android GMail app (the native app by Google).
Apparently affects all Android devices and many different versions of the gmail app. I suspect it's server side. But it's interesting that there aren't any threads on XDA about it, at least from a discussion point of view. The only place online discussing this issue is this thread on the Gmail Support Forum:

tl;dr - major sync issue involving GMail only, affects native Gmail app by Google only, does not affect webmail or IMAP access to people's gmail accounts. not all Gmail users are affected, but the thread above is one of the busiest on the Gmail Support Forum at the moment.

This is still going on, and is actually a pretty huge issue when you consider how "reliable" most people expect GMail to be. After Google Search, GMail is Google's oldest product!

The support forum thread above is now 7 pages! and growing.
It's a shame this issue was literally ignored by the "professional" Android community... (forums, blogs, twitter etc)
