Subject Re: Suitable naming for > Nutchgora branch?

Hi Guys,

Yep I think we've beat the dead horse here about the name :)

This is a good recent discussion/summary: http://s.apache.org/CoY
and I think it had some productive outcomes. I envision a world in
which we keep releasing the current 1.x series until we get up to 1.9,
and then hopefully in parallel release a set of 2.x (eventually release
2.9 if we get that far) and either 3.x is the merge of 1.x and 2.x, or 
1.x becomes 3.x and we leapfrog 2.x to 4.x, etc etc.

IOW, releasing from branches with active maintainers is absolutely
fine and encouraged within Apache. NutchGora right now has at least
Ferdy and Lewis (and you can count me in even though my support 
for the moment is limited to RM'ing) so that's ~3, the trunk has Julien, Markus, Lewis, 
myself and others so that's 4+ active peeps, so both branches have plenty
of people who care deeply about releasing Nutch and kicking butt. So
we're all good here.

Net: here's a productive next step for nutchgora. Let's simply release it.
There is nothing preventing us from doing that. If 3 +1s come in from
Nutch PMC members, we can release :) I'd be happy to RM it, as I 
stated in http://s.apache.org/CoY so let's move forward especially
now that there is a Gora 0.2 release (hat tip, Lewis).

Cheers,
Chris

P.S. Yes, and by the way, self-flails, let's release Nutch 1.5 and get
on with that too! *grin*

list. We had one stable version which is actively maintained and currently used by most people
(1.x) and an experimental one largely untested and used by a minority (2.x). Hopefully when
nutchgora (for which 2.x is a better name indeed) has had a couple of releases and is used
by a larger number of people it will naturally find its place as trunk but for now since most
releases are based on 1.x I think the latter should remain the trunk
