Subject RE: Parent and child projects share same version

Looks backwards to me. I put a version in the Parent and then don't list
on in the children at all, it get's inherited.

Subject: Parent and child projects share same version

I have a parent project and two child projects - the directory structure


The top-level pom defines all the dependencies for the children - child1
contains the actual sources and child2 is merely a placeholder for
aggregating the transitive dependencies into a separate artifact.
Obviously the top level pom and child1's pom need to be synchronized
version-wise so that child1 is built against the right dependencies, but
there appears to be no way to avoid having to manually bump child1's
<parent> element so that it inherits from the right version of the
top-level pom.  Even a reasonable hack in child1's pom,


doesn't work - ${project.version} doesn't seem to be substituted with
1.3-SNAPSHOT in time for the dependency to resolve correctly.  Am I
stuck with manually editing the <version> tag every time I release the
top-level pom or am I missing something?
