this suggestion is not new. We have to *find* people to do it
(you are welcome of course).
As far as I see the current number of continous contributors I
even see problems to keep three trunks (5.0exp, 5.0release, 5.1exp).
We probably do not have the human resources at time to manage such a
huge code base like this. Up to now we didn't reach the number of
contributors as found for KDE or Linux kernel projects. Of course...
Anyway, the 'to branch or not to branch' has been discussed enough.
Point is that we obviously don't get fixed the 5.0 bugs in a reasonable
time frame. From that we have to draw conclusions about the threshold of
critical and non-critical bugs.
