The June release has to be significantly named. It is the only release per year that allows major version changes to plug-ins. We need to make that clear to the community. As such, we can't use the month.


"to the community" ? Erm, you only have to make that clear to the plugin-developer community. Not to the Eclipse user community in general, they obviously are not following or interested in Eclipse internals like API changes.

They'll be interested when their favourite plugins don't load or simply break because of API changes.
