So, not to add fuel to a fire that seems to be calming down, but what is
so wrong with having that feeling? If the core people are spending 3
months doing nothing but fixing bugs, the I consider that to _be_ the
best work from the best people.

Bugs happen and it's not really worth debating over how they got into
the tree to begin with because it happens in a number of different ways.
However, if it takes 3 months of bug fixing to get a tree in shape then
I don't see how that's a problem at all. Personally, I'd rather take a
relatively bug free tree over new shiny features on top of a buggy as
hell tree.

Call me old fashioned.
