Re: [tycho-dev] First org.eclipse.tycho version

Just to make sure that we don't have a misunderstanding here: You want to version the org.eclipse.tycho release that we are going to do after the reneame (i.e. this or next week) as version 0.12.0, and then start development of 0.13.0-SNAPSHOT. Correct?

I agree that we should make the switch as easy as possible. The most important measure to achieve this is the release with identical functionality. We all agree on this. 

It is not really that important how we version the org.eclipse.tycho release with org.sonatype.tycho 0.11 functionality. I just think that it is easier to explain that they have the same functionality if they have the same version number. On the other hand, they are not identical, e.g. users won't be able to mix org.sonatype.tycho and org.eclipse.tycho in the same build.

In summary, I have a small preference for org.eclipse.tycho 0.11.0, so +0 from me for 0.11.0

@Igor: Are you +0 or +1 for 0.12.0?
@Jan: Could you break the tie?
