What rules are you talking about?  GA just means it isn't alpha or  
beta -- it
has nothing whatsoever to do with the version number.  2.2 is now our  
branch, not our GA branch.

Please don't do that.  Change the version to 2.0.0-dev and then give  
like me time to go in and edit the documentation (which is kinda hard  
me to do at the moment because fink blew away my svn install and I can't
build it any more).  We have two weeks before ApacheCon, so there is  
no rush.

In any case, we vote on complete source tarballs, not some  
expectation of
a tag.  There can't be any 2.2.0 release votes yet because it doesn't  
as a released tarball, nor can it exist until we have updated the docs.

No, it isn't -- you said that it was a vote to release 2.1.10.  I  
that meant you were going to bump the version number in CVS.  There were
several people who said they were +1 on 2.1.10 and NOT 2.2.0, and our
voting guidelines have never allowed a release vote to take place before
the release was even prepared.
