Four versions is probably a record!
If I may refresh your memory, to be part of the Simultaneous Release repo
requires using "the latest version from Orbit unless there is a technical
reason not to".
And sometimes there are technical reasons
to have/use multiple versions ... but even then that's ok to do only as
long as it meets the "cause no harm" prime directive.
So, please re-evaluate the version you
pre-req, your and your adopters needs, and whether or not you are committed
to being in the Simultaneous Release Repository.
For those of you that find problems
with having multiple version, please detail the steps to reproduce the
problem, so the Planning Council can better understand the severity of
the problem, and it's likely hood of occurring in the field. We may be
in the unfortunate position of saying some projects can not be in "simultaneous
release repo" [Your project can still release, from your own project's
repo ... just not from the Simultaneous Release repo]. And, note, if some
do have to be omitted, "fairness" or "only those using most
recent" are not really the criteria we'll use, ... we'll just be looking
to "do the least harm" to the community.
I'll make more comments in the bugs
... as should you who use Guava ... but I'd rather spend my time giving
advice on how to solve the problem, rather than deciding who can't be in
the repository ... so, your cooperation in making my life more pleasant
would be appreciated.
