I understand that.

I think some of the "new features" on the release branch are important
(for instance, better support for modern VCS tools), but others have
quite honestly been extremely marginal.  To be honest, as far as I can
see the criteria for putting stuff on the release branch has more less
been "Eh, why not?"

I don't ask that the release be compromised to make my life easier --
but I also don't think it be a bad thing to pay a bit more heed to the
idea that the release branch is mainly for bug fixes and important
feature updates.
