While there is a lot of negativity flowing around I would like to try something positive. At this point since there is no current plans to start a 2.6 Branch this may be just a pipe dream.
However lets assume that we start up development on a 2.6 Branch. What do we want to include and to what level do we want to go?
I like the idea of us going ahead and starting development on a 2.6 Branch regardless of what the XE team is doing. This branch should be considered "unofficial" and not supported by the Normal Core group. This should be considered at this stage as more of a community developed product at this point.
We SHOULD however try to only include items that will use current modules and not break anything in preparation to move to XE. But this should also prepare use of the X2 branch for years to come. This branch could also make the support of Legacy modules a moot point for XE.
Lets have only PRODUCTIVE conversation with this thread please!
