Hi all,

i would like to start a discussion about an official experimental
branch. the branch should be in the same git as trunk and would allow
felix to stage his patches for proper testing in an official location.
looking at the recent metadata patch, mac80211 updates, image building
code, ... they all cause horrific fallout. i talked to felix about this
and he says if he does not push people wont test which i can understand.

the same tree can also be used for kernel updates, new targets,
busybox/toolchain updates and all other intrusive changes that we make.
having a special branch would mitigate this fallout problem to a certain
