Even if there would be more man-power, there will never be total safety
that nothing breaks :-/  Given the age and non-testability of the TYPO3
core as we have it so far, we'll never have that safety without going
public with a release and risk one or another regression from time to
time (I know it's awful if that happens)

Good point. I'd be happy, if at least those security fixes would be
backported to an LTS that are at least of a certain risk (e.g.
exploitable from remote).
