Re: Migration to version 9by
Letting the modules on top dir isn't an option too because some reasons that are already said and some more that I summarize here:
- It confuses users about what modules are available.
- It loads __init__.py files, which can lead to lot of initial broken branches.
- There are modules that are deprecated.
- It doesn't help to recognize which ones are ported.
So I think the proposed solution is less bad. I think that we can also workaround easily the "merge question" tagging 8.0 branches when we make the split, and making `git rebase ^<tag>`, but let me check if it can be. Rebase is not the same as merge, but I even prefer this option in most times. What do you think about this, Stephane?
