I certainly appreciate the need to stabilize releases. But I did get to
wondering lately if the original purpose of maint was kind of lost in
the overall high-throughput repo activity. 

I'm a big fan of Git, and have started using it for non-version control
activities, so I appreciate things can always be fine-tuned to suit the
current situation.

Thanks for the considered replies.

Best, Martyn
