[webkit-dev] Proposal: feature branch

Hi everyone,

The WebKit tree has been locked down for stabilization for a long  
time, and I think there is a desire to work on features and less  
essential bug fixes. It would be bad to hold this up indefinitely as  
stabilization continues. I propose we create a branch (tentative  
name: "feature-branch") where feature work, as well as non-critical  
compliance, compatibility and performance work can go.

We would still use normal review policy so that changes could be  
merged to trunk in the future without additional review.

To make this work well, we'd need a buildbot tracking the branch, and  
maybe even separate nightly builds once there is interesting stuff in
