[geos-devel] branch vs trunk

Yes we are shooting to get GEOS 3.5.0 out the door before PostGIS 2.2. So
probably before September.  A few important  PostGIS 2.2 functions rely on
GEOS 3.5 functionality.


Any comments?

It was actually a really good question.   My opinion (I maintain the
pkgsrc entry) is that you should only package releases, which sounds like
your standard practice too.  But 3.5-to-be is starting to get used as an
almost-dependency by postgis, and I expect pressure from that to
lead to a 3.5 release within the next half year.   (I'm not involved;
that's just a guess as a packager/lurker.)
