> 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.
