My original post was partly because of the discontent I've seen in the
developer community, and only partly because of my own frustration.
But I still think I needed to pop these things up for discussion.

For each major release we at BibleTime start a new stable branch. For
example, 2.9.0 gets a stable-2.9 branch. Meanwhile development
continues on the master branch. Occasionally commits from the master
branch and other fixes are backported to the stable branch. Versions
2.9.1, 2.9.2 etc only get released from that branch. This keeps stable
stable and the volatile volatile.

I never meant to insult You in any way. If You feel that way, I
apologize for my poor choice of words and the deficient amount of time
I have been able to pour into writing these letters.
I and others have just expressed our problems and feelings of
frustration with the current state of things and our eagerness for
certain changes (to ease our frustration and fix some problems). My
first letter in this thread I tried to enlighten the audience about
what is going on at BibleTime concerning Sword. I admit that it was
somewhat provocative (highlighting potential threats to the current
project). But it was to provoke some kind of discussion, a process of
healing, and not a quarrel. In case I have failed in archiving this, I
We must all keep in mind that we share common goals. We are discussing
these things to try initiate processes to help our projects and the
community. There are issues and I pray that God would help us to solve
these in His love and understanding and in a brotherly fashion.
