what I don't like with this plan is that it is exactly what happened with 
3.1.1 then 3.2.1: we never did any bugfix for 3.1.1, 3.1.1 was a dead branch 
for start. 3.2.2 bugfixes could/should have been backported to 3.1.1, but who 
will ever do that? (not me...)

I agree that the lack of schedule can be a problem if we decide to make the 
release this week-end: but if we take one week to integrate Java 7 
improvements (ie mostly syntax for better maintainability and a few new APIs) 
and take one week after that to test the result, IMHO we get a better plan: a 
new Maven version, with features and the assurance we'll do bugfix releases on 
it (the fact that it has upgraded Java requirement is just a fact on release 
notes)

Regards,

Hervé
