Hi guys,

a while ago, people like me who used to follow Ardour git master for 
daily work were advised to step back and stick to 5.x while the dust 
settles on Ardour 6...

Now my question is this: does it make sense at this point to move back 
to git master for non-critical studio work (i.e. the client is not in 
the room, and if it crashes, nobody will know), and the deadlines are 
not deadly.
I'm prepared to encounter the occasional rough edge and maybe help shake 
things out. I would like to avoid massive loss of work and data when 
it's already known that it's more likely to happen than not, and I would 
hate to work on a session for days only to find that a subsequent change 
to the session file format renders it unusable without easy workarounds 
(manual XML editing would be ok).


All best,
