Patched 1.0.0--Better than Rails-1.0.0 or latest revisions?


Rails users, what are your current best practices for dealing with
post-1.0.0 rails bugfixes on your rails apps?

  • Are you using the latest rails revision?

  • Are you using some nameless revision you froze some time ago?

  • Are you downloading and applying specific patches to rails-1.0.0?

Rails core, what are your thoughts about periodically applying a few
backwards-compatible patches to the last official release and tagging

I think many rails users would love to see releases like 1.0.1…1.0.2
between the major releases containing new features & new
bugs–especially if they are using rails on ecommerce sites.
