Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] Branching the trunk for 1.3, and branch update policy

Per our fearless leaders' request, I've branched for v1.3. I did the

- copied trunk to a new /branches/v1.3 tree
- per RM direction, all developers are "weapons free" in the new v1.3
- changed VERSION on the trunk to v1.4.0a1
- updated to include v1.3 nightly
snapshot tarballs
- updated the IU scripts to make nightly snapshot tarballs to include
the new branch

I ran the updated IU nightly snapshot tarball script; it should
populate the new v1.3 page and put a new "v1.4" snapshot tarball on
the trunk page in the next 30-60 minutes (it takes a while because we
do a full "make distcheck" on each tarball).
