[Grok-dev] groktoolkit-releases versus grok-releases

During the release preps today I realized that what is exposed here...
...really is a Grok Toolkit release and not so much a Grok release. I
can very well imagine, releasing a new Grok Toolkit (for example, to
support a new line of zc.buildout) without actually having to release
grok-the-package or even grokcore.*-the-packages.
Not sure if I'm making a point here :) but I guess what I mean is that
"making a Grok release" is not tied to grok-the-package persé, and the
grok-the-package version number might even differ from a "Grok release".
I think this "decoupling" might become even more obvious if more of the
concrete implementations in grok-the-package (like the REST views) are
factored out into separate grokcore.* packages. grok-the-package will
then become more of an import-facade.
Anyway, I'll try to update the release-documentation when I'm working on
the 1.2 release.
