Re: [OpenDaylight Discuss] Pom / Version management & ODL Parent Project - Proposal
I am afraid that the way we are doing releases today runs contrary to the technical goals we need to achieve. Both the release, autorelease and inter-project setup prevent projects from freely issuing releases as appropriate. This freedom has been sacrificed for the "greater good" of not breaking others, because we do not have a way to handle version skew.
The current direction is not working on restoring that freedom, but rather continues to lock all participating projects to path to centralization, to ensure skew does not happen, rather than managing it. If projects do not have complete, decentralized, control over their versions, proper versioning (semantic or other) will never happen.
Inter-project (including release) setup/mechanics/tools need to bow to that, not the other way around.
