[IronPython] 2.1 Branch in Codeplex Sources

Just one other comment on top of what Curt said.  You might more properly think of Main as IronPython 3k.  Main includes a ton of renames and other breaking made in Microsoft.Scripting.Core/System.Core that will end up in .NET 4.0.  We're still working on what we want to do for 2.1 (and input is always welcome of course) but our current thinking is that it will be API compatible w/ 2.0.

Subject: [IronPython] 2.1 Branch in Codeplex Sources

Hello guys,

I saw a while ago a note about some of the Codeplex source pushes
containing code for the 2.1 branch rather than 2.0.

Is it possible to tell which is which when we download a changeset?

I've just downloaded 42708 (we're trying to keep the Resolver One port
using the latest sources to minimise unexpected changes) and it contains
'IronPython_Main' and 'IronPython_2_0'.

The assembly info for main shows: AssemblyVersion("")]

Is this still the 2.0 branch or should I be using 'IronPython_2_0'?

How about some checkin messages to go along with the source code drops?
"Latest sources migrated to CodePlex TFS" is not terribly informative...
