Subject Re: [DISCUSS] To SemVer or not to SemVer, that is the question
Date Sat, 28 Mar 2015 13:06:56 GMT
It should be as easy as http://svn.apache.org/r1669762

Again: custom VersionPolicies aren't exposed yet by the plugin. I've added  
this, so we have time to complete the API, e.g. do we have enough  
information to predict the next version? In the end it is just a matter of  
writing proper unittests.

Thanks,
Robert
