You are very right, we get no help in this department so we are slow about
fixing it.

1.0.7 is the nick name for the development cycle.

We have plans to start a new 1.2 branch soon and we will need stable 1.0
branch managers.

We prefer not to produce burned releases because they get stale rather fast
based on our development pace.
