At netstyle.ch we are using 3.9 for many projects now and we will not  
move to 3.10 soon. We're using some of the critical fixes, so  
basically that means we already have our own 3.9.1 image...
I assume, quite some people are using 3.9 in production as well. So,  
if somebody is interested we could join forces and release a 3.9.x  
from time to time.
