Thanks for the update on the roadmap and particularly the notes on the coming benefits.
Something for the autumn release perhaps then if the updates drop, although I see that poky 
master-next is currently pointing at Weston 5.0 still. Perhaps because Weston 6.0 has not dropped.

For this meta-ivi 15.0 spring update cycle we will concentrate on the current code then.

Well we are in a dev and test cycle so I see no problem updating to it/the HEAD. Is there any reason
we should be cautious?

OK. Good input to the compliance team.
