In order for this to really work I believe we would want to make every committer a committer on the odlparent project. That way, a committer who is reviewing a change to a child project’s POM file could go review and push a change on the ODLparent pom file allowing for a much faster turn around.
I do not agree. Changes to odlparent have the capacity to incur huge amounts of breakage across the board, which is not easy to diagnose. Slight misalignment in seeming unrelated components causing classpath issues has bitten us before and we have only very few people with the know-how and dedication required to track these down.
