Probably because the original blog did and all current code is
derived from it.
So, now for the questions:
- Can anyone comment on why we've pretty much all ended up
hard coding the license feature version rather than using
0.0.0 like we do for include and plugin declarations?
I've done so once, in work-in-progress incubation code linked to
another incubation project whose APIs were very unstable.
- And the more general question, is there any value in hard
coding the number even for include and plugin declarations?
I.e., does anyone hard code the version in of their
feature.xml's plugin and include declarations rather than use
0.0.0? If so, what's the value of a hard code number in that
context, given it's more work to maintain it properly?
