If everyone rallies around 1.2 then can we estimate how much longer
will it take to release it?  From what I understand here are some
current issues that affect our ability to release what's in trunk as

-  completing the TCK
-  specs versioning issue (all one version vs. multiple versions)
-  number of open JIRAs
-  console startup time on jetty
-  pending merges from 1.2-dead
-  fit and finish

I can't speak for others but for my part I'm willing to temporarily
put aside my JEE5 fetish ;-) and focus on the 1.2 release if we can
make it happen very soon.  Otherwise I'm +1 on Matt's new proposal for
changing trunk to 2.0-SNAPSHOT and releasing it as M1 because it
allows us to focus on JEE5 right away while still providing something
useful to our users. Putting out an M1 also has the added benefit of
sending a very clear signal that we're on the move towards JEE5.

Best wishes,
