Subject [jira] [Closed] (BUILDR-636) Do not set hard version numbers for gem dependencies unless absolutely necessary
Date Tue, 15 Jan 2013 03:02:12 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/BUILDR-636?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Peter Donald closed BUILDR-636.
-------------------------------

       Resolution: Won't Fix
    Fix Version/s:     (was: 1.5)
                   1.4.10
         Assignee: Peter Donald

With the advent of bundler as a mechanism for managing all the dependencies, I think it is
much less of an issue these days to use explicit dependencies. 

It is still difficult to get a set of libraries that are consistent and work across all different
platforms, so I don't see our strategy for maintaining fixed versions changing in the near
future. 

Thus I will close this issue until we can remove some of the more flakey libraries or the
ruby libraries stabilize somewhat.

> I am finding more and more that buildr's gem dependencies are causing conflicts with
my own project's gem requirements.  This is typically because the version in the gemspec is
set to a specific version instead of a minimum version.
> For example in buildr.gemspec,
> spec.add_dependency 'rake', '0.8.7'
> probably should be
> spec.add_dependency 'rake', '>= 0.8.7'
> unless there is a good reason that it only works with rake 0.8.7.
