I agree with Kevin that we should eschew vendor tags in the OpenJPA  

It should be sufficient to have maintenance folks know from which  
branch a maintenance release was cut (r547073, openjpa/trunk/ is  
really where you shipped from??? After creating a 1.1.0 tag?). And we  
now have trunk, 1.1.x, and 1.0.x branches as active code lines.

The only reason that I can think of to have a vendor tag is so you can  
do vendor maintenance in it. And I don't think we want to do that. If  
you need to make patches for specific customers, it seems that a local  
repository would be appropriate. And once the patch is verified to  
work, put the update into an Apache svn branch.

What do others think?
