Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Release clean-up (delete ALL the branches!)
Date Wed, 08 May 2013 17:06:57 GMT
I don't know what the Apache stance is on things, but I'm -1 on deleting
the 1.2.x branch. "n and n-1" support is fairly common, unless you want
to consdier n == HEAD and n-1 == 1.3.x.

Otherwise +1.
