Re: Testing 4.0 Post-Freeze


Ultimately, we have a consensus driven development. If Jonathan or Dave
strongly disagrees with this, they can share their strong disagreement.

Jonathan shared his concern about dissuading contributors.

What's absurd is trying the same thing we've tried for 10 years and
expecting things to magically change. We know that a lot of folks are
lining up to test the 4.0 release. If people who have contributed enough to
be able to commit have time to work on features, the proposal is that the
project make it known that we'd rather have them work on testing than
commit their patch, or hold their patch until testing is done. That doesn't
mean they're suddenly not allowed to commit, it's that we'd prefer they use
their time and attention in a more constructive manner.
