Speaking entirely as a volunteer: the answer depends on who you ask. 

Since I think that 8.2.0 wasn't half bad, I'm currently trying to persuade
people who feel similarly to work with me to assemble an 8.2.2 with some useful
bugfixes and software updates, because I think that

   a) it's the right thing to do

   b) it will complement various upstream efforts (both in Fedora, Sugar Labs,
      and the wider FOSS community at large) by helping to concentrate
      deployment-specific testing effort on the most relevant parts of
      their work 

   c) that it's important to deliver a product which directly meets the needs of
      existing deployments even when those needs don't precisely match the needs
      and goals of the larger upstream communities.

Does this help clarify the situation?

P.S. - My current ideal list of changes would include:

   * fix the memory stability issue
   * ship the new gabble w/ support for out-of-band stream tubes
   * ship the latest gnash

and I'd be very happy to discuss shipping various sugar or platform updates as
well; e.g. java.

What do you want to see in a new release?
