Subject Re: DigitalOcean v2 to 1.9.x
Date Sun, 28 Jun 2015 03:18:04 GMT
Theoretically I dislike changing the build order although practically
this has no impact.  Will defer to whoever does the backport.  What if
we accelerate the 2.0.0 release to avoid doing major surgery on the
release branch?  We average a major release about every 7 months:

1.6.0/  27-Apr-2013
1.7.0/  23-Dec-2013  
1.8.0/  05-Aug-2014
1.9.0/  29-Mar-2015

But instead we could plan 2.0.0 for August or September, 5 or 6 months.
This would give DO users a few months lead time.
