I'm catching up with this discussion a little bit late, but the result is
very interesting for the Ivy community, so I'd like to be sure we aren't
going to make any mistake.

Indeed in the Ivy podling we are currently preparing a release, which I hope
we'll be soon able to submit to the IPMC vote. We've called this release
2.0.0-alpha-1-incubating, since for us too it's primarily a release made to
validate our release process and the legal part. We don't intend to promote
the use of this release, since things will still change until the
2.0release, and we haven't done much testing and validation. But we
will
however make the release public, with ad hoc disclaimer about its state.

According to what I read on this thread, I'm a little bit lost to know if we
can continue on this way or if we should make a more stable release.

Any opinion before we submit the release to the IPMC would be welcome :-)

Xavier
