Job one is now to get to the next ESR, and I've decided we will skip 16 and go straight to 17-Aurora to ensure that we have enough cycles to get it working. After 15, there will be two or three 17 releases: definitely a 17 Aurora, maybe a 17 Beta, and then a 17-final which all stable users will be offered (so on the stable branch there will be 10.0.7, .8 and finally .9 to end our support of 10ESR). I will update the Roadmap with this information. Remember, builders, downstreamers and porters, even if we get 17 working with gcc 4.0.1, it will be the last version we support building with it (but assuming we do, it will be supported for the life of 17). More about that when I make a formal post about Judgment Day, which will occur when 18 hits Aurora.
