> The mechanism in release:prepare for creating the new development version of POM's handles
snapshots that are part of the current reactor build differently for dependencyManagement
and for dependencies.
> A snapshot version in a dependencies section will be updated to the next development
version whereas one in dependencyManagement won't.
> The attached patch will change this behavior. It will update a snapshot version under
dependencyManagement if and only if it is part of the current reactor build.
> Note that dependencies cannot contain snapshot versions that are not part of the current
reactor, but dependencyManagement can. I suggest to forbid this too.
> A second suggestion is to introduce a parameter to control the updating of snapshot dependencies
in both dependencyManagement and dependencies sections. Either leave them at the released
version or update them to the new development version. This touches on the discussion in MRELEASE-36
about the developer having to knowingly choose to use a new development version. I would be
fine with using a parameter to select the behavior as obtained with my patch. My central point
is that dependencyManagement and dependencies snapshots should behave the same.
