Thanks Robert!Yes, because that page is end-user collateral for Simultaneous Release.
As such, it is updated during each MRI bump. For example in Silicon, the
first update was here:
as part of https://git.opendaylight.org/gerrit/q/topic:"silicon-mri",
This sort of thing happens in every release between "Release Integrated
Deadline" and "Version Bump Checkpoint".
How about other projects? If you agree we should start mapping them to
the main release version (in this case silicon)? I remember we discussed
this before but can you help me recall the reason why we can't use the
main release name for MRI projects?
Quick answer to that is: because MRI projects are released way before
Simultaneous Release. As an example: Silicon is not released yet, but
yangtools-6.0.0 was released on October 8th, 2020.
The entire idea of a monolithic autorelease-based Simultaneous Release
(where you build all the projects and release them at the same time)
does not actually have a basis in our governance and has been introduced
as a reaction to, and a stop-gap solution for, how badly our very first
release (Hydrogen) went. That in turn was a result of us having been
SNAPSHOT-integrated across all projects and our pom.xml being a horrible
mess. Neither of those is true anymore.
