Subject Re: Moving 2.0 forward
Date Fri, 06 Jan 2017 21:01:10 GMT
I support that idea of cutting branch-2 early. Yes it will create some
burden for the RM and committers to port things between the
branches, but until the branch is cut we won't have that sense of imminense
of approaching release, and more importantly, until
branch is cut _all_ commits will continue to go there, making it hard to
stabilize.

Regarding branch-1 and branch-2 release lines, agree those are unrelated
questions. I'm all for frequent and fast updates to new versions, but
obviously we can't drop support and development on branch-1 until 2.0 is
released and probed by early adopters, and then not until 2.0 is as stable
as what people running late 1.* branches currently have.

Thanks,
Mikhail
