Subject Re: cvs commit: jakarta-commons/collections project.xml

The difference, to me at least, is that project.xml is machine readable. That 
version number can end up in all sorts of places. My concern is 
distinguishing a genuine release from a development or nightly build. 

In theory that's pretty easy, but in practice, someone always forgets. A 
nightly release is promoted into QA in order to test a fix for a bug, and 
then no one remembers when and where it came from. And then we go through a 
cycle of the gee it works for me game.

Right now 'maven dist' builds 'commons-collections-2.1.jar', and packages it 
into 'commons-collections-2.1.tar.gz' and so forth.
