development.  Other than the version (which conflicts with trunk) and our intentions what
makes these branches unusable?
What makes it unusable is that I haven't set it up to be used -  by 
taking the defaults from the maven release plugin I made it useless. 
This is exactly the same in the 0.1-incubating branch. The only reason 
we might want this to be set up more sensibly is if we have a 
requirement to do a 0.2.1-incubating release because someone finds a 
problem with one of the 0.2 modules. That's a possibility and if/when 
that happens I'll be happy to fix up the 0.2-incubating branch properly. 
I'll certainly add this to the Aries release pages so that we get it 
right for the 0.3-incubating release.

>>> I suspect that Zoe accepted the release plugin suggestion that the next version
would be 0.3-incubating.  This would be appropriate on trunk but when releasing on a branch
like this it's probably better to add another decimal, 0.2.1-incubating.  However I hope this
branch is a dead end and nothing other than 0.2-incubating is ever released from it so it
shouldn't make any practical difference.
