Just one note about not stopping adding features.

I follow the Lucene community, and they have an interesting workflow for 
commits. With every feature or bug fix there is a Jira issue. Then someone do 
a patch and attach it to the issue. So the patch generally get reviewed and 
commented by sevral commiters, a patch is always commited only one or two 
days after it has been proposed. And in a release period, only bug fix patchs 
are commited, the feature ones wait the final release to be public.

I don't think we should have a such complete workflow, I don't think there are 
enought active people here, not yet. But at least for new feature in a 
release period I think it would be a good practice to only do patchs but not 
commit them.
