Subject [jira] (MCHANGES-230) Add ability for changes-check to validate that the changes.xml release date is the day of the release
Date Fri, 02 May 2014 14:27:10 GMT

Philip Maher commented on MCHANGES-230:
---------------------------------------

Yep, no doubt that this could get really complicated to handle builds across time zones. 
For my use case I was just hoping for something simple, based on the current time and timezone
of the JRE running the job.  If a release happened on a CI box overnight it may or may not
pass based on when the goal was called in the overall process.  I'm personally fine with either
outcome.  I usually wait a few minutes on my manual releases if it is near midnight just so
I can get the right date on the changes.xml.  For situations where releases are being done
by CI, someone would probably would be better off doing some things with maven properties
to ensure the right date is stamped on the changes.xml at which point you would not need to
enable this validation.

> I like the functionality included in the changes-check in MCHANGES-140.  It would be
nice, in addition to checking the format of the date, if an option could be added to have
it check to see if the date of the release in the changes.xml is the current date when the
goal is run.  I would like to be able to have release:prepare or release:perform fail if the
changes.xml did not have the right day.  This definitely should be an option that is off by
default.
