Subject Re: What is the deal with geronimo-javaee-deployment_1.1MR3_spec
Date Thu, 29 Mar 2007 15:01:41 GMT
This is not our version, its the version of the spec.  IIRC we had a  
big discussion about the best spec naming convention and decided this  
was it.

Despite our best intentions, we often end up releasing corrections to  
spec jars we've published.  Can you suggest a different naming  
convention that will clearly and unambiguously show both the spec  
version and the geronimo version of a spec jar?  Or do you think one  
of these is unnecessary?

As you can probably tell, I think this is a very good practice.  I  
hate it when someone says they depend on "servlet.jar" and I have to  
open the spec jar up and try to figure out if whoever generated it  
bothered to include any information at all about which spec version  
they implemented.
