Subject Re: [DISCUSS] What will trunk become after we create the 2.2 branch?
Date Thu, 20 Nov 2008 13:59:43 GMT
I'm afraid creating a 2.x branch or thoughts of another JEE5 release 
would turn out like the 1.2 release, in that we would never end up 
releasing it, especially once we have a few JEE6 preview items in trunk 
ready to release as Milestone builds....
