Subject Re: Action 2 has begun!
Date Fri, 24 Mar 2006 03:47:20 GMT
I am very excited about this. I have two questions:

1. What is the plan for the large amount of bugzilla tickets
that are against the 1.x branch? Since Comitters are a Limited
Resource, it will be impossible to complete them all and maintain
the 1.x branch, if 1.x is still going to be enhanced.

2. What can non-commiters do to help?
