... and it wouldn't work anyway. What are you going to release? Stall
HEAD until there are no negative comments for 2 weeks? That would halt
all progress. Create a branch every 2 weeks and apply only bugfix
revisions? That could work, but would possibly be *less* stable as you
would be releasing a patched branch, and Stefan would be bogged down in
branch maintenance all the time.

This sort of scheme might be OK for Subversion where there is a large
active development team and some full-time employees, but when Stefan is
maintaining the code single handed it's just one burden too many. And
SVN only does a release every few months, not every 2 weeks.

I vote to keep it like it is too.
