We are targeting 2.0 (as some of our previous mail stated), but this is 
a long process. We know that 2.0 won't be perfect, and we know that some 
bugs will remain, but this is not a reason to be weak and to soften our 
control on the project. This is the price to pay for successful 
projects, and also something we have to do : it's a kind of moral 
contract we have with the ASF...

Thanks anyway for your encouragements, it make us feel like we are not 
totally wrong :)

cordialement, regards,
