Subject Re: Please consider versioning your exported packages
Date Mon, 15 Nov 2010 15:53:59 GMT
Hi Donald,
I know that we need to have a similar discussion within the Apache
Aries project. I'm expecting that we'll start proper semantic
versioning once we graduate and put out a 1.0 release. That means that
pulling in those bundles, we have a number of potentially unstable
package imports of the form ;version="[0.3.0,2.0.0)". It's not ideal
but still better than nothing. Do please let us know the outcome of
any dev-list discussion on the subject. Thank you!
