DEP-10 is focused entirely on how we can avoid and/or circumvent the
freeze process (for things not concerning the next stable release),
which is helpful by itself but also a key part of a working rolling
release, I'd say.  

I'm trying to cover most of the ideas discussed in the previous mega-thread
for how this could be done, including both of the "unstable-updates" and
the "PPA's" approach, and maybe a couple more.  I'm still putting meat
onto the document but in the next couple days I'll bring it back on list
for a more thorough discussion.  So please keep any ideas you have about
either of these approaches readily available :)
