There are enough bugs foxes in Fresh. I would like to explain it to them (Fresh/Stable/Master) and give them the choice. Ala "if you choose master more bugs can be fixed, but terribly things can happen". "Stable is our most stable version. Fresh and master could have more bugs fixed, but could have other bugs"
