  Possible scenario for maintaining 7.3:

  Only one or two committers  using a two stage cvs... one stage for 
testing (not including sandbox), one stage for commit.
  Scheduled releases based on non-critical fixes. Quarterly? Of course 
critical fixes should be released as soon as plausible.

  Separate mailing list for 7.3 issues, concerns etc... Which would help 
develop it's own temporary community.
