Subject Re: 4.4-forward usage
Date Wed, 30 Jul 2014 16:11:27 GMT
Well Rohit,

I was thinking we should not use 4.4-forward anymore at all (or create
a new one) Merging back from it at the moment costs to much conflicts.

I'd say we work on branches taken from 4.4 on a per fix basis and
merge those that are proven.

makes sense?
