Re: [tycho-dev] Tycho 3.0 release

That's why I'd like to switch master to 3.x right now and let 2.7.x be a real maintenance of 2.6.x to get latest platform updates in.

One could even argue that we don't even consider to release 2.7.x unless someone else likes to provide the necessary fixes, it is not really required to upgrade anyways if there are no new features tycho needs to use.

    described jsut the other way round (having a 3.x branch and master is

Names do matter as it shows where development and contributions are most welcome (it's always master)

    I won't expect much development effort on the 2.7.x if we actually
    decide to prepare for 3.x ... we even can omit 2.7. and start with 3.x
    right now, I just thought Alex would have a version with 2022-06

I don't mind if we start 3.x now, I don't mind about the version numbers, even breaking API consumers in "minor" versions if there is substantial value to balance this inconvenience, as long as we don't start playing with multiple branches. You tried it for the 1st time with 2.6 and it looks like much more trouble and work than what usually happens when we don't branch, so it we having 2 active branches for 6 months, it's going to be a nightmare while the current flow of development in Tycho is really fast, we'd end up wasting multiple hours a week cherry-picking stuff from one branch to the other, I don't have such time to waste.
