I don't really see why an issue that is currently in 1.1.0 should
prevent us from issuing 1.1.1 with the same issue. 1.1.0 has been out
for sometime now. Any truly serious issues should have been already
fixed. That's not to say we should just ignore 1.1.0 issues - of course
we should try and fix them. It's just that I don't see a dependency on
fixing those issues for releasing 1.1.1.

That at least was the thinking that went into the reclassification of
many issues to "Assessed".
