Wrong. I was there. RTC was adopted in order to ensure both the
reliability but moreso, the compatibility of changes during a given
x.y major/minor release cycle. CTR existed to make forward progress
and get out of our developers' way.
I'm not really sure Jim's statement here is "wrong". Regardless of
historical context. We use RTC when we want to guarantee review.
You are suggesting a change of policy. It
is not policy to use RTC to get from trunk to 2.6.0, and will not
become policy without a vote for such a change by the PMC.
I'm not entirely convinced Jim is suggesting a change in policy, as you
say. But in any case, I would be +1 to such a change. We should not be
releasing a 2.6.x that contains unreviewed code.
