There are several factors for why we are in the current situation.
1. Cosmo 0.6.1 was not supposed to go this long - it looks like it
will go several more weeks, because we will not release until we've
had several rounds of interop testing with Chandler. So really, you
could almost look at 0.6.1 as 0.7 - which is why I agree that merging
it back to the trunk is now the sensible thing to do.
2. We were not at all sure that we were going to do the dashboard,
and we thought that we were going to make a bunch of dogfood related
changes which needed to be in 0.7 if the dashboard ended up not
making it. Now it looks like we are going to have enough time to
finish the dashboard, so the need to separate that stuff is less.
In any case, yes, I agree that we should merge 0.6.1 back to the
trunk. Actually, we never should have called it 0.6.1 to begin
with. But hindsight is always 20/20.
