I've already been doing it in a way as the *context functions come out
of my pocket. I sort of don't see point in pay for branching dates
though as they are inevitable (as in they will always happen at some
stage). As I said before I'm gonna have to push the deadline by a couple
of days or I will update to 1.8 remotely (which i wanted to avoid in
first place since who knows how that server will take it)

Nobody has any business making demands of

and they are much bigger than mine "is it gonna
planned", Personally I would much rather see branching and
when the developers feel it is ready to happenthan on a planned date.
That being said the DragonFLy team seems to dobetter at hitting
the planned dates than most commercial OSdevelopments.
I don't make the demands but I am demanded by my
clients to satisfy them
by supplying them a good product. If it was entirely
up to me I wouldnt
be making the inquiries at all(I dont care if its
released in january or
3 months later) but I have clients, hence why Ive
often turned to
FreeBSD when DF was missing a feature which I
needed. Therefore I might
be sounding to have demanding tone, but thats
because DF is my personal
OS of choice and especially because of my clients.
(not that they
specifically request DF but because thats what I
offer them + maintenance).
I'm an early newbie and not having clue about
development but... Have you considered to pay
developers for having those exact branching dates and
features you want for your clients? If you receive
something for free, I think you can't demand
something. If you pay explicitely for it (and I don't
mean just donations), then you can.
As I've seen as in my stupid user experience on other
projects, it's better to not give dates when you are
unsure to comply them. Then is better to give
approximately dates thinking in the worst situation,
so if it's released earlier it will look like a nice
