It is good practice, and it was the decision that was made after the  
3.9 arguments that caused the 3.9 team so much pain. Those who do not  
learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

What is not good practice is to arbitrarily ignore the good practice  
that was in place before.

If the discussions about 3.11 had happened on the release list then  
the whole debacle would not have happened in the first place. We would  
have had a chance to explain to Andreas why his back of a fag packet  
idea he knocked up over the weekend wasn't any good.
