Subject Re: 1.1 Candidate releases available

OK, so we have a small issue with the plugins.

They currently list the supported versions of Geronimo in their
metadata.  The idea is that we don't state that a plugin will run in
*any* version of Geronimo, we instead add each supported version as it
is released.  Currently that list only contains 1.1-SNAPSHOT.

Now I can go add 1.1-20060607 to the list of supported versions for
the 1.1 plugins, but we'll never be able to do that in advance.  It
would be nicer if the release candidates had more predictable names
(rc1, rc2, rc3, etc.) so we could add them to the supported version
list ahead of time.

We also have to decide how to handle SNAPSHOT versions of Geronimo.  I
don't really think we want the released 1.1 plugins to claim that they
support 1.2-SNAPSHOT, which may or may not be true depending on the
extent of the changes.  I'm currently planning to have a different
plugin repository for each major version of Geronimo, so the 1.1
plugin repository will be fairly stable and the 1.2 plugin repository
may need to be rebuilt a lot and won't likely have a very complete set
of plugins until the release.
