OK, sounds good to me.  If I had to choose between keeping most of the communities work 'parked'
as PullRequests and patches vs. merged into a 1.X branch that we keep up to date with master,
I'd vote for 1.X branch.

I don't think we are at the point where 1.0 is our next release.  The items
to be included for that release as per the feature proposals (whether
directly as a feature or as an implicit dependency for one or more of those
features) are some considerable efforts and while there may not be many
releases between 0.3.0 and that point, it will likely be too long to go
without any at all.

Certainly agree on the long living branch being an effort of itself, but
may be the course we have to take to keep the project moving.
