[Subclipse-dev] Release and branch plans

Subversion 1.6 RC process is started and the first RC should be out
soon. The major change in SVN 1.6 for Subclipse is the tree conflicts
feature. This has required a lot of new work to support the feature
and the changes in the notifications etc. Here is my overall release

* Wrap up review and applying recent patches that have come in.
* Make a 1.4.x branch from trunk and cut 1.4.8 release from branch.
* Merge the current tree-conflicts branch to trunk and issue a 1.6.0
release from trunk.

1.6 release will require SVN 1.6. It will not currently support
SVNKit. I am pretty sure I already have the plugin dependencies right
so that we can trust our 1.6 release to not try to load older versions
of our plugins for JavaHL etc. If not, I will fix this for 1.4.8.

Since trunk will be tracking the new release and SVN 1.5 support is
likely to be needed for a while, we will keep the 1.4.x branch
supporting SVN 1.5 clients and we will be agressive in backporting
fixes to that branch and issuing new releases.

But as always, work should be done on trunk and only backported to the
release branch.
