It's often hard for outsiders to keep track of which updates are minor
features/tweaks/fixes-for-one-platform and which are major
features/refactorings.   A bump in second-order number will help.

I don't get a vote, but it seems that it would be reasonable to discourage
major refactorings in 2.0, and start pushing them to 2.1.

Sounds like a very healthy idea.

At some point (perhaps now, perhaps soon - I don't have a vote) it will be
time to declare 2.0 closed to major refactoring.

Without digging deep into the process, it's often hard to know


Seriously, though, something like this that could (will necessarily?) break
third-party auth modules would do well to have a version number bump
