Subject Re: Upgrading to Dojo 1.1.1

+1 for trunk.
Can you also move the older versions out of trunk and into the 
geronimo/plugins branch, so people can optionally install them if their 
app still needs them?

If you're wanting to also do this in branches/2.1, then we need to keep 
the older version in the server images, so we don't break existing apps 
that may need them and so we can warn users that we will be removing 
them in the next release (2.2.)
