1. I'll let this one go then, sorry.

2. No worries! I don't know what vte/gnome-terminal will add in this cycle, but especially for the forthcoming 18.04 LTS it would be great not to miss something new due to such a silly misunderstanding.

3-4. I'll forward the request to the main developer not to skip a release (or at least not to skip .90, or not to skip more in a row). On the other hand, GNOME's various freeze dates apply to us too even if we skip a certain release. So e.g. if – theoretically – we skip .2 thru .90 the next time, by the time .90 is due please consider .1 as .90 :-)

Feel free to reach out to me any time you have questions or need a bit of help with vte/gnome-terminal (including e.g. porting the pcre patch). Unlike its main developer I'm actually using Ubuntu, so I'm happy to give some more direct help to this distro.
