Hash: SHA1

While tidying in the PAS SVN repository, I've noted a couple of things:

  - The release tag names, translated from CVS tags, didn't fit the
    current SVN usage pattern, which is to use only the "release number"
    (without the product name prefix).  I copied new tags under the
    new pattern, and will delete the old ones if nobody objects
    (sandboxes and checkout scripts will need to be adjusted).

  - The 1.1 release has lost its momentum, while a bunch of work which
    is really not "beta phase" stuff has been done on the trunk.  I
    would like to propose that we abandon the 1.1 release line and begin
    preparation for a 1.2 release cycle.  I made a branch for the 1.1
    release line, in case we need to go ahead and do a release from it,
    but don't see any benefit at this point.

Note that I have also begun an effort to make PAS and PluginRegistry
play nice with the GenericSetup framework for exporting / importing site
configuration.  I have landed that work for the PluginRegistry:  you can
now actually edit the registry settings as a single XML file via DAV,
FTP, or ExternalEditor.

I hope to get the "standard" plugins exportable / importable shortly, so
that you will be able to "snapshot" your PAS configuration (e.g., to
check it into CVS, or to migrate it to another machine).  Such on-disk
profiles should make installing a pre-configured PAS much easier:  just
tweak the PAS in a sandbox until it does what you want, then export it
to disk, and register the exported directory as a GenericSetup profile.
 Most of what PlonePAS does currently would fall into this category,
with the exception of the GRUF-migration code (I think).
