Unless I misinterpreted something, I think Elliotte was
referring to the need for constant vigorous development
where testing milestones are reached and future extension
carries on simultaneously (not only bugfixes for older
supported releases). A bit like stable and unstable Debian,
or even the Kernel Mm tree that is maintained by Andrew
Morton. I suppose that Fedora and RHEL would be another
example... that in itself signals the need for multiple
patchmasters or maintainers, I think.
Again, sorry if I misinterpreted that short reply. I just
think that have the 'cutting-edge' version of WordPress,
apart from the one which is in its 2-month testing period,
would be awesome!
