Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Correct bundle versioning for GEF 3.9.2 Luna release?

In addition to, or as a supplement to, the tool that Eike mentioned, There is a "versioning guidelines" document at

It suggests that once a bundle changes in "the next" development cycle, to increment (at least) the service field by +100. This is to "leave room" for you to come out with a "maintenance patch" or similar if you decided one was needed, so it then the long term maintenance stream could "grow" into the values or 3.9.3, 3.9.4, or what ever, while "the next" release could be sure to be higher at at 3.9.100. And ideally, bundles are versioned independently of of each other other (that is, not changed simply for the sake of keeping them all the same -- thought know a lot of people don't do that) ... and then the feature version is determined by "the biggest change" in the bundles it contains.  

Now, perhaps you can tell us if the tool Eike, et. al, have developed gives you the same answer ... I'm sure it will be less wordy about it. :)

I am not sure whether this is the right location to ask, but I have a question w.r.t. to the correct versioning of our bundles for the Luna 3.9.2 release of GEF:

For Kepler SR1 we have shipped GEF 3.9.1 (feature-version), which contained org.eclipse.draw2d 3.9.0 (which actually remained unchanged from 3.9.0 release) and org.eclipse.gef.3.9.0 (which should actually have been 3.9.1, because there was a service level change from 3.9.0, but which was not updated either). Both bundles have changed again since the GEF 3.9.1 release (while again only service-level bugfixes). As GEF 3.9.2 (feature-version) is developed on the master branch (Luna stream), while GEF 3.9.1 (feature-version) was developed on the Kepler maintenance stream, should we rather increase the versions of both bundles to 3.9.100 now to indicate we are on a new development stream, or rather to 3.9.1 (or in case of org.eclipse.gef to a more appropriate 3.9.2 because 3.9.1 should already have been included in GEF 3.9.1)?
