You are as well admin and can reopen the issue (read on before you do).

Adding *new features* to skins *do not* help to make views ready to
replace skins. Did you thought about that? 

I agree when we are talking about bug fixes for skins but new features
have to go into views! 

We agreed that 0.8-dev is to integrate views into the core and replacing
skins. Why you always look back for skins, look forward into views! Why
spending time on skins when you spend it better on views?

We have the same situation over in lenya, where 1.4 is not *really
ready* but we stoped adding new features to 1.2.x. All new features has
to go into 1.4. Now we are all starting to get polish 1.4.

...and we *do not* need pelt in views, that is not true. Why do you mean

Anyway I am -1 to reopen this issue and apply it to skins because that
means we have to add yet another property to the skinconf,...

We can do it when it is closed as well. It is applied to the trunk and
to views (both standing for the future of forrest). 

I propose an official stop for implementing features into skin. As I
repeated many times they are a dead end. In skins they should only
bugfixes being applied.

All features should go into views. We need to stick with our roadmap.
