Considering that we already don't support 1.0, it's clear that 2.0 will
not provide any backward support ;-)

Ok, let me be a bit clearer : we should absolutely focus on sources, but
we *can* provide binaries ! Actually, this is what we do.

The way to do it is to have special Maven prodiles to build all the
packages you want.

I can create those versions in JIRA. The problem is that we already have
existing version for Kerberos :

Which is a bit strange considering we never ever released any Kerberos
code !

I think it's related to the ApacheDS releases. I will remove those versions.

I think we need a 1.0.0-RC1, a 1.0.0-GA (for the final version), and a
2.0.0 version for future changes. Is that fine ?

further. For each one desired for the release, we would ensure assignment and commitment in
some certain time with higher priority, as Colm proposed initially in this thread. Sound good
to go?

Atm, what I'd like to have is a release on one of the core Kerby
component : ASN.1. We can use that as an exercise, and I'd like to use
it in ApacheDS, as a separate module.

Wdyt ?
