Hi WebKit/EFL forks,

I support Ryuan to release the first official ewebkit2 version within EFL
1.11 release. As ewebkit2 has been developed for a long time along with
Tizen webkit development, I think ewebkit2 has necessary features enough to
be released.

As the EFL 1.11 will be released at 16th August, we have only 2 weeks to
stabilize ewebkit2. So I suggest to do a bug bash until this weekend and
make bugs with a prefix. (e.g., [EFL][Release], or please recommend a
proper prefix.) This will help us to find a critical bugs in a short time.

> EFL 1.11 will be released after few days later.

> My simple idea is
> 1. when second merge window of EFL is over, bump the version of ewebkit in

> 2. sync and fork that to the version branch in github.
> 3. clear some code if needed.
>     - disable features which are still unstable or under development.
>     - cherry-pick patches which are still under review but very important

> 4. test and fix some critical bugs within last three stabilization phase

> 5. When new version of EFL is released, tag the version like EFL.
> 6. After released, only hot fix is allowed in the version branch for the
> minor release.
> In a short,
> - sync the release process with EFL after second merge window is over.
> - develop the ewebkit in the trunk(webkit.org) always like current

> - maintain the version branch for the hot fix(crash, ...)
> What do you think about it?
