Subject: Developing fix that spans across several Apache projects


There is an issue in the Maven Assembly Plugin cause by a bug in the Plexus
Archiver - To
fix the issue I've created a patch for Apache Common Compress -

My understanding is that in order to fix the issue three releases are
required. First the Apache Common Compress should be released, then Plexus
Archiver and finally the Maven Assembly plugin. I'm new to contributing to
open source project in general so I'll be very grateful if somebody could
tell me more about the procedure in such cases and how should I handle
them. Excuse me if this question was asked already, but I didn't manage to
find any information.

And maybe a bit off-topic. My proposed fix introduces a backward
incompatible change in Plexus Archiver. You could take a look at the
proposed changes here -
/plexus-archiver/commit/c493756f86acbe5d64084a875045f00e905c8136. What do
you think? Tt needs a polish such as better javadocs for the
ConcurrentJarCreator constructor and more test cases, but you could get an
idea about the patch. Does this change require major version change in
Plexus Archiver? Not quite sure if ConcurrentJarCreator is part of the
public interface of the library.
