Work on the stable branch is supposedly maintenance rather than
forward-looking development.

on maintenance than on new things.  But I was commenting on the amount
of manpower getting work done on new things.

Would you claim that the stable-2.0 branch is where new developments are
generally done?  That would seem like a somewhat unusual development
