what actually needs doing?

(other than the mechanics, of course)

that depends: given the scope and the amount of time i have free, it's
likely to be several weeks before i have the implementations i want.  

the last attempt to release JCL 1.1 failed due to lack of interest but i
haven't given up. IMO it's worth doing since it fixes much of the
existing mess. since my plan to cut an alpha for testing failed.

in subversion: all are one and one is all :)

do a 'copy with history': if it ends up in tags then it's a tag, if it
ends up in branches, it's a branch. this makes things much, much easier.

no tag is necessary with subversion (it's easy enough to take a copy
from the revision before the int map stuff gets committed) but IMO it's
neater that way.

so, i'll take a tag.
