  • Milestone changed from Under Consideration to Future Release

Yarn currently is very new and very shiny...

Enough complications arouse in #WP38657 with 4.7's npm-shrinkwrap.json and as Yarn doesn't currently behave nicely with NPM's shrinkwrap process let's wait a while until it's a little less new and shiny...

For those reasons, moving to future release until Yarn gains a few fixes that will help rather than hinder us.
