At risk of getting the greased pole.....

The point that both I and Jim raised when this issue last appeared was
the undoubtedly "longer shelf life" that 1.1 will likely see. No one
commented at all about this point which I think is valid.

Why can't we branch the CVS tree and get started with 1.2?
Wasn't this the advantage of setting up CVS?

I think that we are still seeing valid changes and cleanup patches
coming in like Andy and Jim's and would like to see them go into
the 1.1 release. By branching and waiting for things to die down
a bit on 1.1, we stand a much better chance of not repeating the
1.0 release scenario. The reason the 1.0 scenario happened was that
we got in a big toot to shove it out the door.
