Yes, the plan was to split two of the three implementations (cli and avalon)
into branches and actively develop cli2 in the trunk

any bug fixes which are made to cli2 which are applicable to cli will be ported
across although I don't think this is that likely as cli2 is quite different
from cli. There may also be a cli facade onto cli2 which would allow any
bugfixes to cli2 to be incorporated automatically

The cli branch can be found at /jakarta/commons/proper/cli/branches/cli-1.0.x/
the avalon branch is /jakarta/commons/proper/cli/branches/avalon-implementation/
