Looks a bit weird, but in the end it shouldn't be a difference in
amount of work. The only difference I see is that you always see the
versions of other components that are unrelated to the current
component (in the Sling project). And the overview pages are a bit
cluttered. But this could be seen as a missing feature in Jira...

Ok, so this style seems to be accepted, then Jackrabbit couldn't be
made responsible for cluttering the Apache Jira ;-)

I didn't said it had no issues, I just proposed the granularity to be
the one of a Jira component. It might be painful to release components
separately, but that's simply because Jira doesn't allow a
matrix-style versioning and/or forces release units to be a separate

As it seems, releases are the major driver for this decision, so I can
live with the separate Jira projects.
