Of course not! 3.0 closes 1 critical bug ("replicator 2.1
was set up for potato"))+ 2 importants bugs + some other
bugs not in the BTS...
I don't mind the version number, but since I had to increase
it, I prefer to reflect the potato->woody transition.

No. Bug correction is what matter. Version numbering is
cosmetic but I had to choose. And as 1/4 of the code was
changed to set up replicator for woody (i.e to close the
critical bug), this deserves an increase in the major number.
btw should I write a special kind of explanation for the
release manager? how?
