Subject Re: Best way to remove demo data?

Why 10.04 vs 11.04 at this point?  11.04 is way better (blogging
actually works).

Also, as long as you have gone through the initial trouble of setting
up your own vendor branch (real important) using trunk is feasible.

has seen nothing but bug fixes for the past 15 months.  So imagine taking the trunk and spending
15 months only fixing bugs, that is what 10.04 is.  Does the trunk have more features? Yes,
but in my opinion you're unlikely to need any of them and if you do you can always consider
back porting the relevant code that you need.

changes instead of maintaining patches like everyone else.  Most users don't have that power
and if they do submit a patch it is pretty unlikely it will get committed very quickly.
