I agree we don't want too many branches.

Will fixes for the 1.0.1 release (hopefully we can get out in a few 
weeks) be committed to the 1.0 branch and then we create another tag for 
the 1.0.1 release?

My thoughts..

Do we have any guesstimates on when we would have JEE 5 development 

How long it will be before we can deliver a release with some 
innovations in it, since we previously agreed we want to release 

If this is going to be a while then we should discuss the work that is 
planned for the near future and whether there are enhancements that can 
be delivered in a releases before JEE 5, and if so, how that could be 

Could some of the planned enhancements impact the stability of head 
development and therefore should be done in a branch? E.G. would we have 
stability problems doing JEE 5 development, re-arch of security, maven 1 
to maven 2 migration, xbean support, corba impl etc. all in head?
