Err... "not" really viable yeah?

Yep, good idea.  We should definitely have a list of "core things we support",
plus some way of communicating things also being worked up.

Yep.

Would it make sense to branch git at the point we enter "feature freeze",
having the new branch be just for the release in question, and allow people
to continue committing to master?  (I'd also think this is the point we could
generate a "release candidate" tarball for people to test if they want)

When bugs turn up in the freeze period, the fixes can be applied to the release
branch.  It sounds like it _might_ also mean a bit more work, as the same fixes
will need to be applied to the master branch too.

Good/bad approach?
