This is horribly broken.

/branches/0.11.x is for BUG FIXES for /tags/0.11.n

A user who is using 0.11.0 should be able to patch up bugs by upgrading to 0.11.n without
having to install 1.0. That is the whole purpose of this kind of versioning and release procedure.
Someone please tell me this is still going to be the case?

J Chris:

What is happening to the 0.11.x branch after 0.1 is cut? Is it going to revert to being a
bug fixing branch for the exiting 0.11.n releases? If not, then something is horribly horribly
broken: either the plan for releasing 0.1, or my understanding of the plan.

I presume it is the latter, but could someone explain to me how I'm confused?

Sounds good.

The 0.11.x branch is there for releasing bug fixes for 0.11.n, so it will obviously stay.
