Subject [jira] Created: (MSHARED-191) Specification-Version must not contain "-SNAPSHOT"
Date Mon, 28 Mar 2011 14:40:23 GMT
Specification-Version must not contain "-SNAPSHOT"

                 Key: MSHARED-191
             Project: Maven Shared Components
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: maven-archiver
    Affects Versions: maven-archiver-2.4.1
         Environment: Ubuntu 10.10, Maven 2.2.1 and Maven 3.0.3, OpenJDK Runtime Environment
(IcedTea6 1.9.7) (6b20-1.9.7-0ubuntu1) (64 bits)

            Reporter: Romain Buquet
         Attachments: patch maven-archiver

of ${pom.version}, because it represents the spec version, not the build ;
- Implementation-Version has to be set to ${pom.version} to represent the exact version of
the build.

This used to be the behavior in Maven 1:
