Owing to a *very small* active group of developers of CTDB, most of
the new commits would be bug-fixes. ;-)

I didn't want to take on extra work of maintaining multiple
development/release branches till there is significant contribution
and new developments. I will continue to release from master till we
need separate stable and development branches.

Last time I checked, the last community released code (either in
tarball or RPM form) was 1.0.114. Correct me if I am wrong.

If the changes I mentioned were present in 1.0.114 release, I need to
improve my git skills significantly. :-)
