Hi Henrik. I would expect you should be fine; work is done on branches 
and then QAed before being merged so the quality level is in general 
fairly reasonable. Whether to use it in production depends on how 
conservative you are. I would, but then I might be biased :)

Be aware that if you use any plugins you will very likely need to 
compile all of them from default too.

Cheers, Simon
