Agreed. (I have actually made this explicit in the FAQ since day one.)

Preparation + release checklists. So actually, 39 steps in two lists.

Bugfixes and a move to qdox instead of xjavadoc to parse source files.

Getting 2.2 out would be a nice endcap, and if you could just get the

So, 2.2 and then move it to dormant, or?
