All of our changes are supposed to go into trunk. This is not always happening 
immediately unfortunately, but we currently have merged all changes until two 
weeks ago into trunk. So saying the number of changes in our tree is growing 
is IMO not really correcy. We're currently trying to get our Qt 4.4 beta out, 
and are therefore a bit slow with merging and submitting our changes.

But one large change we did (fixing a crash with navigator.plugins and 
autogenerating the bindings) is now hanging in the review queue for almost 4 
weeks. We currently can't afford to wait that long for some fixes to go in. 
Most of us can't hang our on IRC late every evening neither which seems to be 
often a requirement to push things forward.

As I said earlier, we don't like working outside svn, but with having a 
deadline to release a product and with WebKit trunk currently moving ahead 
and implementing new features we didn't really have a choice.
