Subject [jira] [Reopened] (BCEL-215) Wish BCEL would publish pre-release versions to maven central
Date Fri, 20 Mar 2015 16:04:39 GMT


John McKowen Taylor reopened BCEL-215:

(I just updated the title to be more accurate)
Can you please confirm, then, that the reason pre-release packages are not published is due
to Apache policy?
I just scanned Apache's release process and it seems that is the case, that there is a fairly
high bar to be cleared for publishing a release.
I am coming from a more Continuous Integration workflow, in which consumers configure their
build process to either consume latest, possibly broken, snapshot version - or they lock the
version at a specific, qualified version - so the upstream artifact publisher is therefore
free to publish often, with less concern about the stability of individual releases. Seems
Apache has more of a "Cathedral" model of releases.
Thanks again for your responses.

> As a consumer of BCEL, I want BCEL builds to automagically publish finished packages
to Maven Central, so I can simply require BCEL jars in my build scripts and let Maven or Gradle
retrieve them as needed.
