LOL erroneously? - one is allowed to name names.

As one who tests against master for reasons I've specified elsewhere, I
should say:

a) I almost never find bugs/unannounced changes in the master API.
b) But truth is, I generally pull from the master branch only when I'm
about to check my own code into the master.

So I'm not providing much feedback as things mostly work by the time
they get checked into the master.

The current setup works well and decouples one's development from the
release schedule. We should continue to rely on that.
