Great, thanks. I think we shouldn't add too much maintenance fixes. We 
should keep the Trunk "release ready" instead. :)

About the developement process: I think we should clean the Inbox ASAP, to 
let future contributions flow in and motivate people to keep contributing. 
There's some 8+ months old stuff there which should be merged to the 
Trunk. So, I think Core developers should increase their activity and 
start merging/discussing Inbox contributions. We should keep it clean 
in the future.
