0.33 != Beta

From: <kfogel_at_collab.net>
Date: 2003-11-13 16:55:23 CET

After emails phone conversation, we (Greg Stein, Ben, Mike, me, a few
others) agreed on this plan:

   - Include the #1429 checkout improvements into 0.33 (because it's a
     big improvement, not likely to lead to repository corruption, and
     at this point just needs wide exposure to find any compatibility
     problems)

   - Merge the #1578 fs history algorithm fixes to trunk immediately
     after 0.33 (because those are subtle and it would be good to have
     a gentler review & ramp-up time for them; and also we didn't want
     to combine an fs schema change with a working copy format upgrade
     *and* a client/server protocol upgrade)

   - Merge the #1595 transaction removal improvements to trunk right
     after 0.33, because they are non-trivial, and Mike only has 24
     hours in a day and doesn't want to rush them into a release :-).
     Also, same concerns about giving them some "soak time" apply. In
     general, it's nice to have a change be in HEAD for a while before
     it appears in a blessed release, though we're making an exception
     for #1429 above.

   - 0.33 will still be Alpha. Either 0.34 or 0.35 will be Beta;
     we'll make that call when we have a better impression of their
     stability.

So. Don't want to be some private Star Chamber here, so if anyone
thinks this is a wildly bad plan, please speak up :-). But we think
it's a good compromise between stability & distributing improvements.
