It's better to set up separate branches in the source repository so the crazy fun wild development can run in parallel with the testing and polishing.

We would continue to create branches for major releases to release bugfix and security releases as needed.

Unless I misinterpreted something, I think Elliotte was referring to the need for constant vigorous development where testing milestones are reached and future extension carries on simultaneously (not only bugfixes for older supported releases). A bit like stable and unstable Debian, or even the Kernel Mm tree that is maintained by Andrew Morton. I suppose that Fedora and RHEL would be another example... that in itself signals the need for multiple patchmasters or maintainers, I think.

Again,  sorry  if I misinterpreted that short reply. I  just
think  that  have the 'cutting-edge' version  of  WordPress,
apart  from the one which is in its 2-month testing  period,
would be awesome!

Best wishes,
