Please don't make edits in the tags area.

Branch 2 also has issues, which we've also been ironing out. The
branch-2.0.1-alpha and branch-2.0.2-alpha will be deleted soon.

That would be fine.

You can wait for 0.23.3 to clean up. The only odd part of that is that
the 0.23.3 tag won't be on the branch-0.23.
With Ant, we could just override the version on the command line.
Clearly Maven is a little pickier. You could:
1. Set the version to 0.23.3
2. Check in
3. Make the tag
4. Set the version to 0.23.4-SNAPSHOT
5. Check in
I'd also be ok with just waiting with 4+5 until the vote passes.
Thoughts? (Of course as discussed this would be more about 0.23.4 :) )

Sure. That makes sense.
