Subject Re: Release planning
Date Tue, 04 Jan 2011 21:44:22 GMT
+1 from me. I've committed today a bunch of patches which were in 1.2 but
not in 1.3 (just one last one to do) but haven't compared with 2.0

Having a release based on 1.3 would be great as it would be a nice
transition towards 2.0 (delegate indexing/search, dependency management with
Ivy, separation between local and remote deployment, removal of redondant
plugins etc...).
