branching, tagging and merging is quick and easy in subversion. much
better than CVS :) 

releasing can take can a few weeks. holding up new work on a component
that has been stable for a while for a new release results in a loss of
momentum. AIUI there's also work to be done on the commons build

the approach taken with pool was to create a tag for a possible future
1.3 release (the existing code base with fixes) before add new code.
we're about ready to think about cutting a 1.3 release which will
probably be followed promptly by a 2.0 release. this has worked well.

i was just floating the idea ATM but are there any objection to create a
release branch for 1.1 rather than freezing the code?
