I'm not involved in this debate really, but here I've got to agree with 
Steve.  With the separation of api and implementation packages, the 
release process must be able to operate independently IMO.  That's 
already been my experience developing a bevy of components that have api 
and impl separation.

However, the point is well taken with regard to the view/management of 
JIRA support for each artifact
