[Buildbot-devel] Future of the eight branch?

I said when merging nine to master that the future of Buildbot eight
is up to someone who wants to maintain it.  I saw three options:

 * 0.8.9 is the end of the road (the default)
 * continue to make bugfix releases
 * add features (so, a fork)

I haven't heard from anyone willing to maintain the branch, so at this
point we're defaulting to "end of the road".

However, Alexander Sashnov has just submitted
which adds a feature to the eight branch.

This forces the choice.

So, if you think you *might* want a future 0.8.x release of any sort,
and are either willing to maintain it, or want it enough that you're
willing to convince someone else to do so, now's the time to speak up!
