Re: Release numbering for branch-2 releases
+1 for a release with all the changes that are committed. That way it
carries all the important bug fixes.

We have been incorrectly using point releases to introduce features. Given
there are many features in this release, calling it 2.1.0 instead of 2.0.3
makes sense. As you said, I am okay with the proposed plan as long as we do
not lapse back to introducing new features in point releases meant for
critical bugs.
