In the past we used to wait to branch spin-kickstarts until almost the
release. This was because it avoided having to do commits to two
branches (in most cases) and with very little work being done specifically
for the release past the next one.
For F17 we did the branch close to when the release branched. It was
that some F18 work would be going on before F17 was released.
There didn't appear to be many issues as a result of this change.
seemed to remember to commit to both branches. Git makes this easier than
perhaps it would have been under CVS. We did have one case where a merge of
master back into F17 was done instead of cherry picking, but that wasn't
too hard to fix.
Given that background, what would people like to see happen for F18?
I am slightly in favor of branching now, but if most want to wait until
specific changes are needed, that would be OK with me.
I'd prefer to branch too please.
