Then you both missed the beginning of this thread where Aaron was  
saying "i want to update branches/1.1 with a fix for 1.1.1, where did  
it go?"  The issue is, we haven't released 1.1 yet and no one should  
be updating that source till then.

Hence the idea to copy 1.1 aside as 1.1.0 so the activities of  
creating, voting, and shipping 1.1 (which take about a week) could  
happen in parallel to bug fixing 1.1.1.
