[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.
