Subject Re: [DISCUSS] secure 0.20-based branch
Date Fri, 23 Apr 2010 21:30:43 GMT
I support Doug's idea whole-heartedly. The question that remains is "who
gets to test and stabilize this new branch"? I am proposing that we
designate a owner for this branch and it is the onus of the owner of this
branch to test/stabilize that branch.
