Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Enforce Gerrit for Simrel?

I also would not like to have to change versions.
Changing the URL only allows me to change one line quickly.
Changing each version of each feature group is more work and more error prone.

And when speaking about tests, isn't it possible to verify that each URL is not a composite repo?

I may misunderstand this fixed version stuff, so I better ask explicitely. I will not be forced to author exact feature versions in my contribution files, right?
I'm fine with the rule of contributing only fixed content, but I prefer to achieve that goal with non-changing repos.

The rule currently accepts version ranges with "changing" repository URL. However, it seems very difficult to write good tests that guarantee that the rule is respected... That's why I'm trying to push towards the 4-digits version rule as "de-facto standard", since it can trivially be checked.
>From your contributor point-of-view, what makes changing the version more difficult that changing an URL? In any case, you'll have to make a change in the b3aggrcon file whenever you want to contribute something new. It seems to me that the extra-cost of changing the version when also changing the URL is not that high, is it?
