For which I thank you two a lot! IMO this revisions patch needs more kudo's 
then the forms API, because the latter was caried by a whole lot of 
shoulders, while the first mostl by four shoulders.

What concerns me more is how to deal with this in future. 
* How to make sure 4.8 comes quicker and more 'in time'.
* How to make sure that we can get bigger changes in, better and 
easier(profiles as nodes, taxonomy.module's code overhaul, upload module 
partly rewrite, aggregator.module is lagging behind with the current 
technlogies, just to name a few that i suspect will become hot 4.8 issues)

Did Roberts idea of the cooker get any follow-ups yet?
