How about we keep 1.1.0, 1.0.2 and 0.11.2 then?

When 1.0.3 is released, we'll archive 1.0.2 at least. I don't think we
should be encouraging downloads of 0.11.2, so I'd like to archive it

policy should be.

there maybe be certain circumstances where some technical detail means that not providing
a smooth bugfix upgrade path may cause problems. That was one of the primary things I was
hoping to clarify by starting this discussion.
