Let's not get carried away. In the current discussion it seems the main
objection to switching from several people is that they are in the middle or
close to the end of their development cycle on products that depend on OE-
classic; it's totally understandable that those people can't switch at this
time. I'm not entirely convinced those people can't use the 2011.3 maintenance
branch for those purposes however.
As regards to things missing or improvements needed in the new OE-core based
structure, those things will only get better when people who are able to do so
commit to moving across. You can't expect a restructuring of the thousands of
recipes to come fully formed from a small number of developers - please, we
need your help. If more people get involved it's only a small amount of work
for lots of people as opposed to a large amount of work for very few.
