I'd like to add that after there is an announcement about FF, all core

features or extensions. We expect only bugfixes. If there is anything else,
we need to be very transparent about it, and have them in public place like

In the past, we had a practice when developers would continue to work on
enhancements instead of bugs, and cores would support it. And in fact, FF
moves to SCF - and we have to slip our release. Let's not do this again.
