Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Remove SNAPSHOT from versioning and keep tags on the release branch
Date Mon, 20 Oct 2014 14:00:46 GMT
Hi Pierre,

Thanks for sharing. I think in your use case, if you’re using debian packages you can take
the source and add a package release with suitable names in debian/changelog; in case of rpms
you can add a tag/build-version (like What I’m proposing is to remove using
-snapshot suffix in pom.xmls and in debian/changelog by default. If anyone want that convention,
they can run a script to do that automatically as well. This tries to reduce code divergence,
the effort it take to find/fix build issues say when building deb/rpm packages, especially
between version changes.
