After the jumbo-6-fixes experience I am absolutely sure it will end up a mess. We need to have *one* tree for people like Dhiru or Claudio to commit to. If that is bleeding, someone need to backport patches. If it's unstable, someone need to forward-port them. I do not wish to do either, I want to write formats. > > I am fine with you actively working on just one tree, and it can be the > one that we'll release after 1.8.

This will be much like the -fixes branch we had though, which was a mess. On the other hand, it will be easier now because we'll not have a third branch. And with a little more disciplin than I could produce last time it might be a lot better. OK, so to be realistic we might be best off keeping it the way it is for one more month. Then we declare unstable-jumbo a strictly bugfix-only branch in January and at that point I'll start merging patches and we'll get to adapt ~200 formats to the new interface B-) Dhiru, others, what do you say about all this? magnum
