- The differences between trunk and the fixes branch have become too many, over a thounds revisions. It is difficult to oversee their relations and dependencies, so I cannot guarantee the quality of the fixes branch just by looking at the patches and revision logs.
- I want to focus on the 0.9.28 release rather than maintaining 0.9.26.3 and working on a 0.9.26.4 release.
So, from now on nobody from the current Lazarus team maintains the 0.9.26.3 branch. If somebody from the community is using the Lazarus fixes branch on a daily basis and want to extend its life, then that is possible. The new maintainer would supply me a list of revisions to be merged and tests the fixes branch. I would do the actual merging and keep the snapshots of the fixes branch alive. If you are interested, you can contact me and we can work out the details.
