If these bugs cannot be reproduced in 3.3, please do not use "3.3.8" as 
group when describing these bugs.

There are bugs in all releases, even when named "stable". Of course we 
try to balance the importance of the bug (if it's known before a 
release) to avoid a release with "big" bugs in it.

We agreed that we won't add features to master for now because we are 
stabilizing it for 3.4. When it's time for 3.4.0-rc1 (release candidate) 
then MAINT_3_4_0 will start and it will be time to add features to master.

Meanwhile you could start a new branch (even a public branch) to work on 
these features. See [0].
