Subject [Android] VERSION_CODE generation
Date Tue, 02 Jun 2015 15:01:24 GMT
I just fixed CB-9080 by removing the fix for CB-8834, since I consider
VERSION_DOWNGRADE to be easily worked around while not launching the
application on older devices is an unacceptable fail state.

The thing is why is VERSION_DOWNGRADE happening in the first place, and why
are we generating the versionCode?  This code should be linear every time
you actually release something to the play store, and otherwise should stay
the same.  I know there was a bunch of messing around with it to sync it to
whatever Apple does, but I don't know if that's the right approach here.

See this form more info on versioning:

Can anyone explain more about why we're generating the versionCode the way
we are right now?
