Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Several proposals
Date Fri, 28 Oct 2011 10:04:37 GMT
Another proposal comes from Gert.

The purpose is to support "version range" in the <repository/> tag in a 
features descriptor.

As we support version range in the feature (for instance <feature 
version="[2.5,4)">cxf</feature>), the <repository/> tag should also 
support version range.

I'm going to raise the corresponding Jira.
