[elogbook-dev] Angular 4.0.0 vs. 4.4.6 vs. 5.2.9

Hi,

I posted my comment to CQ 15944. Since it is "Type A" license, it does
not cause much effort to be checked. In Eclipse Winery, we are "Type
B", which is much more work (on both sides) to get libraries approved.
Therefore, I am asking you guys whether it is possible that we both
use the same Angular version to reduce the heavy load on the Eclipse
IP team.

I saw that you are asking for Angular 4.0.0, which was released on 24
March, 2017. The (next) bugfix version was released 6 days later. The
last version in the 4.x line is 4.4.6.

In the context of Eclipse Winery, we also want to use Angular, but are
struggling with the CQs currently (see
https://dev.eclipse.org/ipzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=13951).

Currently, we are using Angular 4.3.5
(https://github.com/eclipse/winery/blob/78ef7554a56ae8458fc1aeb4e7fa3c7e64bafdbe/org.eclipse.winery.repository.ui/package.json#L21)

Is there a special reason why you stick on 4.0.0? Can you also use Angular
4.3.5 or update to an even later version? See
https://angular-update-guide.firebaseapp.com/ for necessary updates between
certain Angular versions.

I would propose an update to Angular 4.4.6, released 19 October, 2017, because
a) it is the latest in the 4.x series, b) an update does not seem to be hard,
and c) Winery also uses Angular 4.x. So we could use synergy effects.

Maybe, we could also have a joined update to Angular 5.2.9 (latest in the 5
series)?

P.S.: If you want, we can have a short call. Just send me a short email.
