Because we are now in phase II : replacing the JNDI parts (Attributes, 
Attribute, ModificationItem) by our own parts (Entry, EntryAttribute, 
Value and all their inherited parts). As soon as those changes will be 
done, we will move bigbang to trunk and start Phase III, which is not 
completly defined.

FYI, Phase II is described here :

FYI too, the bigbang -> trunk move was important because we needed to 
expose a stabilized form of the configuration, for documentation purposes.

Hope those explainations are clear enough :)
