This is what I would lean towards for AR1. The only hitch might be that 
because we are dropping Outrigger's logstore we might want the version 
number to signal a bigger change, however, I would argue that because 
there was no pro.zip in v2.1 that getting rid of logstore isn't as much 
of a change as it seems at first glance and overall v2.1.1 communicates 
the right level of change.

I assume at some point before we exit incubation the need to move from 
the com.sun.jini package name space will make us want to bump the 
version number to at least 2.2, if not 3.0.

And it is that way today. We are tricked by hope into starting
companies, beginning books, immigrating to this country and investing
in telecom networks. The challenges turn out to be tougher than we
imagined. Our excessive optimism is exposed. New skills are demanded.
But nothing important was ever begun in a prudential frame of mind.
