[Seaside] So where is the "release" version of 3.7?

I don't understand the push back.

There are a bunch of branches.

I would like to see a branch
Seaside2.7 - which I would expect to be the release version.   The  
really great email by Philippe that lists all the features in the new  
release should be in the class comment of the oldest version in this  

Any new changes in this branch are minor bug fixes.  Minor bugs  
discovered in 2.8 and fixed will have to have their fixes  
backported.  Keeping the list apprised of those fixes you make will  
help people improve the quality of 2.7 while still letting you press  
on in 2.8.

The comment in the last version of 2.7a1 BTW gives me pause:

- backoff the change in mb-202 entitled "recovered essential lost  
input conversion code"

That doesn't sound like a minor bug fix.  It sounds like a big  
change.  It makes versions from 202-204 suspect.  Not good versions  
to use for production, probably.  But this is the immediate ancestor  
of the Seaside2.8a1 branch?

So my complaint is that the version numbering only makes sense to  
you.  The criteria for bumping the version number only makes sense to  
you.  There is nothing for someone doing production code and desiring  
a stable platform to hang his hat on.

I'm glad you're having fun.  But I'm not.
