Subject Re: Recommendations to resolve artifact/version fubar
Date Mon, 28 May 2012 22:15:25 GMT
Unfortunately, there are already some 'third party' packages that depend 
on jdom 2.0.1, and thus, people using the new jdom2 2.0.2 will have two 
different versions of the same jar .... right? ... which is perhaps 
worse than not having it at all ... ;-)
