Subject [jira] (MNG-3092) resolution of version ranges with non-snapshot bounds can resolve to a snapshot version
Date Mon, 04 Aug 2014 14:44:13 GMT


David Hoffer commented on MNG-3092:

Yeah I get the idea.  Impossible to do so but it would be interesting to know the set of users
so turned off by this debacle they stopped/didn't use Maven vs the set of users using the
broken feature, but I suspect the former is a much larger size.  That being said I concur
that Maven shouldn't break builds in existing versions, but that is easily handled.  They
should fix it now but put the fix behind some optional flag, e.g. command line/settings.xml/etc.
 Then in a subsequent Maven version upgrade that move that to the default behavior.  When
they went to 3.0 would have been the ideal time to make the fix but any non-bug fix version
change is fine.  And...if the Maven devs want to support the 'legacy' broken behavior with
an optional flag that is fine too.

> The attached patch only allows snapshot versions to be contained in a range if they are
equal to one of the boundaries.  Note that this is a strict equality, so [1.0,1.2-SNAPSHOT]
will not contain 1.1-SNAPSHOT.
