Re: [cdt-dev] process question about API

I'm not a CDT committer, but did work on javadoc many long years ago.
The @since tag takes any text value after it, not just major.minor
version numbers as is normally used*.  So, the real question is what
@since values will API tooling accept.  My hope is that it uses
org.osgi.framework.Version (why re-invent the wheel?), so "@since
5.0.2" should work.


*I just checked and found that "@since time immemorial" works fine in
Javadoc, which may prove useful. :-)
