thanks for the introduction, and thanks for being here. You are absolutely
spot on time !

You have some very serious arguments why we should keep master alive, which
I admit I never thought about. I would be happy to have master == develop,
and keep stable as we defined it.

@peter, you suggested not to use master, what is your opinion ?

as a little funny thing it seems the asf git bridge is one of the broken
tools, cloning worked as soon as we added a master branch.

@andrea I know you are pressed for time, which makes your mail even more
important to me, looking forward to see you in FOSDEM. Do you know when the
talks will be accepted/rejected ?
