Release goals for 22.XX

Hello all!!
My 2 cents here...

An important part of the whole project is upstreaming patcvhes as much as possible, to try to keep the maintenance burden to an acceptable level. We do so, and there have been very nice efforts. I think we might try to do so more aggressively if we think we want to release more often.
I have no opinion on this actually, but I am under the impression we are accumulating a good number of patches and this might slow us down somewhat.

Thanks a lot for your great work folks!!
