releases made little sense as they're hard to review).

as a whole. Within that source release we will then have multiple bundles, and each is versioned
independently. The same goes for exported packages. We actually use "packageinfo" files in
exported packages to ensure consistent versioning of those. So of course not everything will
change every release. I see this in a similar way to for example a release of the OSGi specifications:
there is an R4.2, R4.3, etc but within that release, some specs and packages will have changed,
others might not.

binaries of a complete ACE server for example, and maybe others.
Hmm, but wouldn't that mean that we have to do a full (source) release
for a simple module fix?
