 > Ademar, can you cherry-pick this to qtwebkit2.1.x? thanks!

I think it is time to clarify what goes in a patch release, and what is 
a stabilization fix. IMHO, this is not a stabilization patch, it is a 
new feature. And that the root of all the problems of 2.1.x, it is not a 
serious stabilization branch, it is a just a branch.


Let's talk about this here on the mailing list..

I agree with Benjamin in the case above, this patch is an added feature 
and does not belong on a stabilization branch.

And is qtwebkit-2.1.x even a stabilization branch? It was supposed to be 
2.1 + video, but looking at the most recent cherry-picks, there's a 
mixed bunch of changes being added: spatial navigation, contentEditable, 
IME, rendering fixes..

Is there a schedule for the release of 2.1?
Is there a list of things to be done before we can release?
What's stopping us from releasing 2.1 right now?

Please note that I'm not out to give anyone a noogie and/or wedgie here, 
I'm just getting the feeling that the 2.x branch(es) are a bit.. out of 

Hugs & such!
