Having a dedicated, and well-defined 4.7, as well as several branches aimnig
at "some distant" release sounds like an even better plan then a single 5.0
CVS is not ready for this, though, but we should certainly not hold ourselves
back because our tools are bnot able to cope with our ideas :)
Let us not get into a CVS vs. XYZ fight right now, but focus on the
Having several brancheseach with their onwbn group and goal is a brillant
plan. Theme overhauls do not stand in the way of CCK. A i18n in core will not
hold back any development on big nodeapi improvments and so on.
So; after I read this post by Larry, I think aiming for a 5.0 is not a good
idea after all. But aiming for a 4.7-without-Uncastrated-male-cattle-poop
still is a good idea. A,nd having a place, or more places, to put all that
Uncastrated-male-cattle-poop is a good idea too, especially if those can be
placed in a lot of seperate places.
