Actually, what I would like to see is to start a beta phase for dovecot 1.0, 
declare 1.0 feature freeze and only commit bug fixes to this branch from now 

Timo's work can continue with a 1.1alpha version, in CVS tip.

After some time of beta status (which may encourage more people to upgrade 
from 0.99 to 1.0) Timo could make an offical 1.0 release and distributions 
would be very likely to catch up.

Early adopters and those who want new features immediately (like dbox) 
should continue to follow the 1.1 version as they see fit.

Things that should be fixed before making a 1.0 beta, IMHO:
- included plugins should actually work

Of course this is all up to Timo, so, I am very interested in his point of 
view. Timo?

Best Regards,
