Re: [virgo-dev] Virgo release branding

Hi Wayne

We discussed this topic at today's RT PMC call and there was a general consensus that the ability to release parts of a project without the overhead of putting those parts in subprojects would be very useful. Of course, the usual release review and IP log freezing process would be required.

So what else do we need to consider before we can agree this approach?

Thanks,
Glyn
