As a user I would expect major changes when jumping from 2.x to 3.0, 
maybe accompanied by introduction of new features and incompatible 
changes in APIs and config files. As long as this is not the case I 
would stick with 2.3 to stay in sync with expectations.

convenient... ;-)
Stefano, thank you again for picking this stuff up.

Question: Should I create a new JIRA issue for every future patch or 
keep attaching to existing issue JAMES-427?

Oh, I didn't know that. I'll have a look.
