We have written some very frustrated blog posts. Time to reflect on them and outline some causes and plans to move forward.
1. Why are we so frustrated?
There have been a small number of people consistently fighting the major/critical bug queue for a long time. We got Drupal 7 released (through patching and reviewing some 8000 issues) but after that we needed to continue the bug fighting and this really got on people's nerves. For example the upgrade path has been critically broken for two years without a break.
