Subject Re: [DISCUSS] No more release branches for 1.x, release from branch-1 directly
Date Fri, 07 Dec 2018 20:05:09 GMT
yes please this would be great!

I have a DISCUSS thread I've been drafting about doing the same thing
for branch-2 releases. I think in general we need to get back in the
habit of only making maintenance releases when someone steps forward
with a specific need.

I plan to keep making branch-1.2 releases until April 2019.
