good idea

I think the only blocker is the versioning issue, see below. Regarding 
the contrib projects I think that the first thing to do is to rename the 
folder to sandbox and promote the candidates to be included in the 
release, I think that jcr-rmi and textfilters should be included. We 
could also update the site and svn tree to something like
/jackrabbit (or ri or impl)
/subprojects (or ???)
If there's consensus I volunteer to play with the multiproject maven 
plugin and try to get a nice site out of it.

hmm..., I don't think it's a good idea to release anything if there are 
blocker issues, i.e. versioning issues. I've been a user of apache 
products for many years mainly because of the high standards of its 
products. Many times I didn't read the release notes and I used beta 
projects in production without major problems, at least that I'm aware 
of, so I'm happy anyway ;). From a user perspective I wouldn't like to 
download a released project from apache which has known major bugs, it 
would hurt a long time relationship ;).
