So, I don't actually disagree with what you're saying, but I think we
already know that we are looking for different things out of this
repository :)

This is not a problem, but I do want us to be able to agree on a
wording that works for both of our use-cases.

I currently have no interest in the stable-* branches, but I
completely understand why you need them.

I want _lots_ of platforms in master, but I want all of the platforms
in master to be ones that have an active maintainer - and as such will
be fixed up as required when core changes happen. To me, master should
be drinking from the fire hose. But any platforms in master that are
not being kept functional should be moved out and archived.

If we cannot agree on the meaning of master, then I would request
another specific branch to fill the function I describe above.

Regards,

Leif
