Yes, there are two different branches

The top one is where 3.0 development is happening.  The bottom one
holds the source for the 2.2 release.

Any of the following would help move us along

* Review javadoc for typos / errors
* Review userguide to make sure it is still accurate and / or
contribute some new / better examples
* Review JIRA tickets resolved since 2.1 (with fix version 2.2) and
make sure there are no other semantic changes
* Review clirr report and make sure there are no @since tags missing
(could be Sebb has done this already)
* Review changes.xml for typos / misleading or incomplete
descriptions.  This is used to generate the release notes, so some
cleanup may be required in this file.  Also make sure there are no
changes described that were either rolled back from or not applied
to the 2_X branch (I think I have already verified this; but more
eyeballs are good)
