I don't think anyone disagrees with this line of reasoning. It's certainly
up to the RM what gets included in branch-2 and hence what gets put up for
release votes under the "2.y.z" version numbers. I don't think Todd was
suggesting we rename the JIRA version "0.24.0" to "2.1.0".

But, the question still remains of how to refer to the branch "trunk" in
JIRA. I don't think it should be called 3.0.0, as that's not necessarily
the next release that will come off of it, and using a version number for
trunk that changes from time to time has other downsides as I described in
my response to Arun. Given this, do you object to renaming the JIRA fix
version that refers to the branch trunk to "trunk" ?
