RE: Next Pig release proposal
Based on the discussion - there does not seem to be a disagreement on the first 2 points but we still don't have a consensus on the version number. The problem is that we can't branch till we do.

I am going to send a separate email on the vote for the version number. According to our bylaws, we need Lazy Majority from Committers and the vote lasts 3 days.

Here is what I propose we do for the next Pig release:
(1)    Branch early next week - we have major features  and many bug fixes in and will be fixing remaining bugs on the branch

(2)    Publish the release by 11/15 - that will give us a couple of weeks to stabilize the branch and get last minute bug fixes in

(3)    Make this release a 1.0 release. Reasons to go for 1.0 and not 0.10

a.       This release has minimal number of features and was focused on code stabilization and bug fixes. We believe it will be a stable release

b.      It has no major interface changes

c.       Going from 0.10 to 1.0 would be very confusing
