Re: [emft-dev] EMFT "Project" Compare 0.7.0 release without a Release Review?

Well, I'd hate to contradict Nick, but I did do a release review for M2T (JET, JET Editor) 0.8.0.

We treat all our components that way -- as independent entities -- be they in EMF, MDT, M2T, or EMFT. But as with Ed and Cedric, I too was under the impression that a RR was only required when releasing a 1.0+ version, not a 0.x version.

Consider the following 8 precedents:

EODM: 0.7.0, 0.8.0
UML2 Tools: 0.7.0
JET: 0.7.0, 0.8.0
JET Editor 0.7.0
CDO: 0.7.0
Net4j: 0.7.0

I don't think any of these underwent a RR. In fact, JET rolled back from 1.0 to 0.7 because Paul wanted to be able to release code w/o having to go through a review.

When did the policy (or its interpretation) change? Releasing incubating components in 0.x versions w/o going through a review has been BAU for the past 2 years.

Given that EMFT is treating it's components as projects (independently
managed, independently scheduled, independently released), the
requirements most definitely apply to components.
