Sure. The thing is that I'm unconvinced that we can really say that
the under-pressure phase is over.
More specifically. Can we declare the end of UI experimentation and
redesign? Can we start pushing back on features until we are ready to
implement them properly? Can we devote the next release cycle to bug
fixing, polishing and performance improvements?
My opinion is that we should do it, but I don't have the feeling that
we have consensus about it.
