Subject Re: Can't reporter.a.o automatically detect version number and release date?
Date Thu, 25 Jun 2015 15:17:14 GMT
Alex,
I think you made an assumption that "format" meant naming schemes of
releases, but it didn't. Simple "a defined way" to make that available for
reporter to pick it up with relative ease.
Your suggestion of a doap-based solution is equally a "format". The
important part, I think, is that "whatever way is chosen", that it is
documented and notified to PMCs, with optionality to use it.

For me; DOAP is as good as anything, although there are probably a great
demand for linking that with Maven publishing "somehow". Since our Gradle
build is generating all kinds of meta data output anyway, one more wouldn't
hurt much.

Cheers
