> Currently when features are merged a simple algorithm is applied which just picks the
highest version based on the artifact version. However this version might not have no meaning
at all and might not really reflect what has changed inside the bundle.
> Especially when there is a major version change, this approach seems to be clearly wrong
> But in the end, picking a single version is magic.
> While the problem could probably be solved by using something like a resolver and figure
out if just one version is enough or if both versions are needed, without a resolver there
is no way to figure this out.
> Therefore we should provide a similar way as we do for variables at the moment: if there
is a clash the caller needs to provide context on what to choose.
