Konstantine,

For a release to be truly viable, it has to be deployed in production and followed on with
bug fixes over time. Otherwise  the release may not stabilize and it becomes confusing for
users.

Is EBay already using it in *production* (you had used the words "actively" and perhaps you
meant
"production") and are you  planning to do bug fixes and periodic releases? On the other hand,
 is EBay planning to instead fork 0.22 and maintain an internal release for custom improvements?
