--- Comment #14 from Michael Catanzaro <mcatanzaro at igalia.com> ---
Thank you Andres!

I don't think more time in the unstable series would have helped; we had two users report this was broken in unstable, so clearly there was enough time in unstable.

Carlos, I think a different merge strategy might have helped in this case indeed. I would never have guessed "[GLIB] Implement garbage collector timers" would have introduced a bug, but when I was looking at the backports a few days ago I noted this one in particular and was confused why it was selected, since it's a large amount of code not fixing any particular issue, even though it looked probably harmless.

I would have avoided the RenderThemeGtk/ScrollbarThemeGtk changes (probably harmless, but huge code changes with no benefit to users), the recent XSSAuditor changes (pushed quite recently, would have held off at least until 2.10.6), Martin's hyphenation fix (probably harmless, but enabling a new feature that we've never supported before), the MIPS fixes and OS X build fixes (just to have fewer commits in stable)....

Still, this is art and not science, the only way to avoid regressions is to not backport anything. Thank you for the hard work on the stable release; I am excited in particular for the scrollbar fix!
