Bill, how is ANY of this new and different? Are you saying that in
the "old days" people did checkout and test trunk and that they
aren't now (or pulled HEAD)? Or that we now do beta or RC releases
between 2.4.x and 2.4.x+1 ? Or that stuff in trunk goes immediately
into 2.4? Or what?

IMO, we need more people to follow the code instead of (or
in addition to) posting bikeshed email threads.
