Dennis, you don't understand my point. I do not oppose version numbers
in general. I am simply asking to restrict version numbers to those
plugins, which are actually used in a pom file. As soon as the
commons-parent pom *is* using the mrr plugin, then I'm all in favour
for adding a version number.

You don't ask to add a version number for the war plugin, just because
projects *could* use the war plugin, do you?


Look, that's why there's rules, understand? So that you think before
you break 'em.
