We (JOnAS team) are already shipping with that 1_4_FINAL version. (Are 
we alone to use that version, geronimo guys ?) So we would like to have 
an official release.
We know that that version is ok in regards with JOnAS test suite (and TCK).

For us, 1.4 is what is located in that 1_4_FINAL branch.
Then, the HEAD should be 1.5 (if there are a lot of changes) or 1.4.1 
(is less changes).

What do you think ?
