Subject [jira] [Created] (COMDEV-143) Allow for multi-product PMCs
Date Tue, 07 Jul 2015 13:55:04 GMT
Sebb created COMDEV-143:
---------------------------

             Summary: Allow for multi-product PMCs
                 Key: COMDEV-143
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMDEV-143
             Project: Community Development
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Reporter Tool
            Reporter: Sebb


Some PMCs release multiple independent products.
However there is only a single release version database for each PMC.

The current work-round is to prefix the version with the product name.
For example Apache Commons might use versions of the form:

LANG-1.2.0
and
IO-2.3

It might be better to provide an optional field for the product name.
[Could perhaps be made a required field for PMCs known to have multiple products?]
As an initial implementation, it could be just prepended as per the work-round.

The releases database format could later be changed to store the prefix separately. This would
allow more sophisticated displays and statistics; easier grouping of related releases. etc.
