Subject Aries blueprint release timeline?
Date Wed, 28 Mar 2012 08:18:34 GMT

Is there a timeline (or at least some idea of a timeline) when the current release issues
will be resolved and when blueprint 0.4.1 will be released?

In general I think that the module-release issue which was addressed in various mails before
this (e.g. Jean-Baptiste Onofré's mail from March 16th) cannot be resolved unless semantic
versioning is introduced. Version range imports are already done by the maven bundle plugin,
so building a bundle with some version of the bundle (e.g. util 0.3) will result in package
imports like org.apache.aries.util.tracker;version="[0.3,1)" already now; so as long as the
semantic versioning is really maintained (which means that the version 0.5 is compatible to
0.3) having one bundle installed that was built with util 0.3 and one that was built with
util 0.5 is supposed to work (when util 0.5 is installed).

Of course there is some issue with testing this stuff... This could be resolved by having
version ranges in the bundle version of the maven dependencies (e.g. [0.3,1)) and re-running
the tests of all released versions, but that means that a bundle is always built with the
newest available version of a bundle (and the maven bundle plugin will also take the package
versions from that bundle, even if this is not necessary).

Best regards
