In the case of
jakartaee-api, it looks like there are some maintenance issues
addressing. In that repo, we do have the 8.0.0-BRANCH
The pom was recently updated to correctly indicate the version
this branch is 8.0.1-SNAPSHOT. This gives us the proper
for maintenance efforts on the API in case we need to do an
down the road (or 8.0.n).
Maybe I'm not following this correctly...
We have a branch named 8.0.0-BRANCH.
In that branch, the version has been updated to be 8.0.1-SNAPSHOT.
And if/when we do a release on that branch, that 8.0.0-BRANCH branch
will have an 8.0.1 release in it. And presumably layer, if we need
it, an 8.0.2 release.
Shouldn't we name that branch something that more clearly indicates
it's not just the branch for 8.0.0, but rather it's the branch for
all 8.0.x maintenance releases?
