Long term, we are aiming to not have our own major branch. Just
small stabilization branch for different phone releases.

It should be fixed in ToT first, and backported to the S60

Our aim is to merge with ToT. I believe we may still need 
branches as we stabilize versions to go out with phones. 
Development should happen on ToT.
As you may be aware, Safari is currently on it's own branch
too. I hope to see Safari move to ToT too in the future.
