Mike Connor has blogged about the Linux policy discussion we had during the summit and the conclusions we reached. I don't have much to add. Because Mozilla release schedules and distribution release schedules often aren't aligned, distributions are often adding features and non-security fixes to their branch builds. It will be very helpful to be able to share those changes between distributions via Mozilla CVS.

We are going to have to deal with situations where one set of distributions wants only security fixes on a branch and other distributions want to ship features off that branch. I'm not quite sure how that's going to work yet.
