It means it will be included in next 2.0.x release... So if we need a new rc
before releasing 2.0.0 final, yes, it will be included. If we don't need
one, we'll promote rc1 to final, and thus will start the 2.0.0 final release
branch from the 2.0.0-rc1 branch, on which I've not merged the fix.

Here are the rules I think we can setup on where commits can go:
- if the commit is an improvement or new feature, not deeply impacting
current architecture, commit on trunk.
- if the commit is a bug fix with no potential side effect (like IVY-905),
commit on trunk and merge on 2.0.x
- if the commit is a bug fix with potential side effect, commit on trunk,
discuss the potential side effects, and merge on 2.0.x if we agree it's
worth it

With this strategy 2.0.x branch should go straight on a stabilization road
only, while trunk let us still evolve on trunk toward what will probably be
2.1.

If somebody wants to make changes with deep impact on Ivy architecture, I
think we'd need to discuss it first, and see if creating a 3.0.x branch
would be worth it. But I think we should better focus on 2.x for now.


Does this plan sound ok for you?
