Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Maven Skins version 6
Date Sat, 07 Jan 2012 19:15:10 GMT
Hi Simone

Thanks for your efforts on the new Fluido Skin.

We have not released all the skins together like this before. A skin
release is like a plugin release, it's done once for each skin. Then
there is the skin-parent which also has it's own release cycle.

When I look in SVN for skins:

I only see one tag for all of the releases you propose, skins-6. In your
case it does seem that all skins have had changes since their last
respective release, but that is usually not the case. This will mean
that it is very difficult to find the tag for a particular release of
say the Fluido skin. How do I know that Fluido Skin 1.1 is in Skins 6,
just by looking in SVN?

It would still be possible to release all skins in one vote, by using
the same staging area in Nexus for all of them, including the release of
the skins parent.

However I feel strongly that each released skin should have its own tag
in SVN. So I'm -1 on the vote for now.

We should probably change the skins-parent to something like we have for
plugins, for this reason. One parent, which is used to inherit common
configuration from and then another aggregator-pom that can be used to
build all skins together in a CI-environment. At present these two
functions are the same POM.
