Subject Re: Cherry-picking fix that may change 4.3.1 schema
Date Wed, 03 Sep 2014 08:32:46 GMT
4.3.1 to 4.4.1 then should contain all effort that is also in 4.3.0 to 4.4.0

I don't look forward to the work but it is doable.

What bothers me most is that we are putting so much enegy into 4.3.1 at the
moment while 4.4.1 is about to be rc'd.
