Ok, so the problem is "sovled" partly.

I didn't have your skills in mind because I'm sure they are great. ;-)
What I did have was that it's not trivial change to Forms code and it would be desirable to
version number.

That's more problem with Subversion in general than with Eclipse, IMO. It's said that Subversion
will be having some improvements in that area. As for now I recommend use of Subversive instead
Subclipse. Despite few bugs in Subversive it has much better support for multi-project commits,
merging, etc.

Speaking more generally I don't think that whiteboard is a good place. What I would like to
see is:
1. You create branch (like cocoon-forms-1.0.X) in our branches folder
2. We release subsequent candidates for 1.0.0 from that branch and maintain it for reasonably
time making few 1.0.1, 1.0.2, ..., releases.
3. Meanwhile you (and others) can work on implementing new features in trunk and when all
(or most)
features and bug fixes for 1.1.0 are in we branch it to 1.1.X, and continue work in trunk
on 1.2.X
our 2.0.0.

This would demand a little disciple from us but I think it's good way to have releases on
time and
enough freedom for innovation.
