Good point. I don't think this would result in a complete refresh since I believe the underlying plugin versions change.
I thought that the 2.0.1 release should contain all 2.0.1 features, but after reading your post I am not so sure.
I would welcome input from the update team or anybody else for that matter on how to proceed.
My intent is that all features become 2.0.1 but plugin versions are only revised as required.

What is the rational for changing the feature.xml's in advance. When
the plugin owners change the feature.xml for the first time shouldn't that
be the time the features get upgraded to 2.0.1? Otherwise 2.0.1 will be a
complete refresh of the features when perhaps some of the underlying
plugins haven't changed?
The reason I ask is I am wondering if there was something I missed about
how updates work? Since we tend to follow eclipses lead in this area.

I have edited all the *-feature and primary plugin projects in the R2_0_1
branch in preparation for starting 2.0.1 builds. In the feature.xml files
I have only changed the feature versions from 2.0.0 to 2.0.1. I have not
changed any of the plugin versions. These are all primarily 2.0.0
Your plugin versions (in the plugin.xml files) should only change to 2.0.1
IF you actually have plugin changes to contribute to 2.0.1. If you do
change a plugin version for the 2.0.1 builds you must remember to make the
corresponding change to the appropriate feature.xml files in the
