If you are wanting to push EAs to Central, then we must have a predictable
versioning scheme. Publishing to Central makes the release perpetual. So
EA2 after EA is not predictable. If you insist on this idea, I would use
EA-01, EA-02, EA-03, etc.

Let's design things out well and avoid being haphazard.

You know for a fact that IntelliJ's EAPs are removed once they are no
longer relevant. Because they own their file server and can remove them
whenever they want. That's why only 15 EAP and 14.1 EAP are available.

Haven't you thought why 13 EAP, 12 EAP, etc. are no longer available?

You are talking about releases from 2012 and older. Haven't you realised
why they stopped doing that? Please don't bend reality to make it fit your

Hibernate seems to keep all versions in maven -

Yes, and they publish Betas, Service Packs, Release Candidates, etc. They
have a complex, pragmatic and well-defined lifecycle.
We are just talking about EAs in a very particular situation. It's going to
be extremely random to look back and see:

Ignite 1.2.0
Ignite 1.3.0
Ignite 1.4.0
Ignite 1.5.0-EA
Ignite 1.5.0
Ignite 1.6.0

If we want to define a full lifecycle with public milestones, I'm all up
for it. It does create lots of complexity and release work, though. But
publishing an EA to Central just because in this particular release we
changed something big, to me it's a NO-NO.

I would like to hear the opinions of people outside of GG. @Cos, @Brane?

And please Yakov, let's respect the community and don't take decisions by
ourself without consensus and without giving people the opportunity to
speak their mind.
