Subject Releasing the parent spec pom.
Date Mon, 03 Dec 2007 15:11:30 GMT
I was just starting the release process for the latest activation and 
javamail spec jars.  The parent pom for the current trunk version is 
listed as being 1.2-SNAPSHOT.  Previous releases used a 1.2 version 
number.  However, the current trunk version will not build with the 1.2 
parent pom.  It appears that when the OSGI changes were introduced, the 
parent pom version was made 1.2-SNAPSHOT when it should have been 
1.3-SNAPSHOT.  Is that correct?

I can deal with that, but now I'm trying to figure out the release 
process for the parent pom.  How is this done?  In the past, we released 
all of the specs as a group, so the 1_1 tag branch contained the 1.1 
parent POM.  I don't see anything in our branches to indicate that a 1.2 
parent pom release was ever made, but we have current released specs 
that have it as a dependency. 

Additionally, the specs pom in trunk explicitly lists each of the 
submodules in the pom, which is a bit of a problem if it is to be built 
from a branch containing just the pom and not the subprojects.

So anyway, I'm guessing the first step needs to be to update the parent 
pom version to 1.3-SNAPSHOT.  Once that's done, whats the procedure for 
creating a non-snapshot version for newly released spec jars to use as a
