Hi Aaron,

I think it might become 1.1 and if a bug fix comes in it would make it 1.0.1.

Yes, that would be exactly what I wish to see happening. The time
showed that it's very hard to manage the 3-months period, but it's
worth to try again. I'm not sure about the 6-months period when
Geronimo 2.0 would eventually show up. I think it's too short, and
before it happens two or three mid-releases (1.1, 1.2 and 1.3) would
probably be well-received by our community. I think these mid-releases
seem to be (perceived as) less painful and would allow features be
available sooner.
