I am using it, but we have to convice the major distributions
(Debian, CentOS, Ubuntu) that it is stable. Being "modern"
is good, but it doesn't mean anything to them. We have to
say explicitly that it is "stable".

To my understanding, stable means that there are no new
features and no interface changes. All new development
is being done on another branch, and this one is frozen,
except for bug fixes.
Are we there yet? That is, are all the planned/intended features
and improvements implemented already?
