Given that there is no rush of people to get involved in reviewing and
picking up and progressing the 2.x branch, it does seem far more
appropriate to progress the 1.x branch as far as possible.  Get 1.2 out
asap and then plan for a 1.3.

As far as I can see changing from 1.0 to 1.2-SNAPSHOT does not cause any
problem for the Groovy build and test.  However, it seems that no unit
tests were added for the problems raised by 1.1 so I cannot present
evidence that 1.2 solves the problems.  What I can say is that it
doesn't create new ones.
