Subject Fwd: [MATH] commons math 2.0 snapshot jars
Date Thu, 20 Nov 2008 15:41:00 GMT

Here is a discussion started with one [math] user. As a result, James proposed to switch development
back from branch MATH_2_0 to trunk (and to switch trunk to a new 1.x branch). I agree with
this suggestion but cannot be sure about how many users will be affected. Just to be sure,
we should probably do a move rather than a copy as I suggested in my last message (and btw,
James, it is what you really suggested in the first place, isn't it ?).

So does anybody have an opinion on this ?

Yes, I know, its only two "svn copy" commands. The rationale for me was mainly that it was
decided some months ago to work on this branch and this is now known by several users. This
was one of the reasons why when I fixed an issue in Jira, I always added the version numer
and the branch of the correction, i.e. MATH_2_0.

As both of you voiced against this situation and your proposal is sound, I'll propose the
switch on the dev list.
