+1 (non-binding) for 2.5 to be the last release to ensure JDK6.

I'm thinking skipping an intermediate release and leapfrogging to 3.0
makes it difficult to maintain branch-2. It's only about a half year
from 2.2 GA, so we should maintain branch-2 and create bug-fix releases
for long-term even if 3.0+JDK8 is released.

Thanks,
Akira
