Subject Re: Proposal To Branch for 1.0 Today
Date Sat, 06 Dec 2008 05:34:27 GMT
Ok, Happy to change the version to SNAPSHOT, there are valid arguments  
on both sides and no perfect solution.
but to give others the chance to comment, I am going to leave this one  
to you.

BTW, I didn't just 'delete the designated release branch and create  
one at a random point', we all spent several days talking about it on  
list, and you must have read the message that said what was going to  
happen.... its what started this micro thread.

In future, perhaps someone else should do the branch.
