Subject [cli] (or [cli2]?) Plans for CLI 2.0 release?
Date Wed, 11 Nov 2009 20:14:30 GMT

Apache Mahout is moving to fully a Maven-based build/release process
and they're having problems with the commons-cli 2.0 dependency which
I believe they get through Hadoop. To solve the dependency issue,
Mahout has deployed that snapshot to Maven central as
org.apache.mahout.commons:commons-cli:2.0-mahout. This works for now,
but is clearly not an ideal solution.

So, are there plans for releasing CLI 2.0? The codebase is obviously
already being used, so having an official release would be quite nice.
If the API is still not final, would it make sense to release
something like 2.0-alpha1 to make downstream projects happy without
making strict backwards compatibility commitments?
