Branching sounds good.

The native external is used in the dist.xml build file in order to
include the tcnative sources in the TC src release. So either we need to
adjust this part of TC build process, or simply switch the external for
TC 6.0.x to the 1.1 branch (and keep TC trunk native external pointing
to connectors trunk).

I expect you plan to branch all of connectors and not only jni/native?

Whenever that native trunk gets released the first time, we should
rethink the versioning though. I guess 1.2.x would make more sense than
1.3.x. We are now at 1.1.x, which is based on APR 1.2.x (and might work
with 0.9 too), so expressing any direct version dependency could be
confusing.

Rainer
