[Pharo-project] [update 1.4] #14279

for each bug we assess whether it is important or not for the previous version and if this is the case
we batch some changes for the previous version.
Now this is a lot of work and really few people help or seem concerned so we do as much as we
can and it makes sense.

Now I guess that this is always the case: people have to decide.
Then integrating a fix for a bug that has not been discovered after 10 months does not imply anything on the
stability of the system. Pharo 1.3 is stable, as 1.2 was and as 1.4 is.

Now while this is hardly a critical issue I'm curious... now that it issue is marked closed, what is the plan to track these small fixes and roll them into a Pharo-1.3.1?   Once you get the business support model up and running I would imagine this task falls to the paid engineers.  (Release management is not exciting.) From a business perspective I would think that this is (almost) MORE important than the good refactoring work your doing to come out in a future version.

Seeing the versions go only from 1.3.0 to 1.4.0 to 1.5.0 does not instill business confidence in the stability of the platform.  Maybe you are willing to sacrifice that image at this early stage to move faster with limited resources, but just something to consider.
