I didn't disucss that with Lennart before he escaped TBH. Arun, can you
perhaps ask him if you see him at Foss.in? With regards to that?

I'd be off the opinion that I'd like to see a master release sooner
rather than later. I know Lennart generally works to Fedora release
schedules and as F-15 will be running systemd for the first time, I'm
not super confident of whether Lennart would realistically expect a new
PA master release in that time frame or not. I'd say it would be nice to
aim for that until it's clarified but like I say, I'm not super confident.

Regardless of the "official" plans, there is of course nothing to stop
us taking a stabilisation approach to master now.

I'll send a mail about that in due course to start that ball rolling :)
