Just like with any project, the goal is to ship the best product possible, but in some reasonable
time. So these 2 have to be balanced. FWIW I have a very long list of things I want to see
in Cayenne, and would prefer a permanent Alpha, but we have to ship stable releases occasionally
:) So now that we cloned the Beta to a separate branch (and if the release vote passes), all
bug fixes will be applied to trunk and that stable branch, all other changes that have a potential
to destabilize the API or the framework will go on trunk. So the final release stays with
a fixed feature set, but becomes more and more "stable" as we fix the the bugs. All the new
stuff goes to trunk.

Awesome! Thanks for taking time to review the existing docs (yes, we still need to write a
lot of those, something I hoped to accomplish while in beta). With this patch I guess I can
manually fix the typos, so what you sent us is everything we need. Going forward I'd appreciate
if you could open a Jira and attach patches to it. There is a little thing to check when you
submit a patch explicitly authorizing ASF to use your contribution. Just a formality, but
makes it easier for us to include the contribution in Cayenne.

Thanks again,
