RE: [cdt-dev] Update CDT feature/plugin versions for Helios SR1 and Indigo releases

I'm new to feature handling for our development.  I'd like to know what I should do to features, when I update the version of a plugin.
Looking a the mail below,
1- I should make sure the feature that imports that plugin has a new version since CDT 7.0
(either minor or major, depending on the plugin changes part of that feature).
Could there be more than one feature impacted?
2- When changing a feature version, I need to update the cdt.releng plugin buildsite.xml to remove
the old feature version and put the new one
But also, I think,
3- I must check feature.xml and somehow deal with the "Dependencies" tab.  This is unclear to me.
Some of the dependencies use "Compatible", some "Greater or Equal", and some fo the versions
of the plugins are older than the actual plugin.  Should I keep those versions the same as the plugins?
Which type of dependency should we use? "Compatible" or "Greater or Equal", or is there a smart
way to choose one of the two?
Thanks for any guidance.

Subject: [cdt-dev] Update CDT feature/plugin versions for Helios SR1 and Indigo releases

Hi everyone,

We need to update the feature/plugin version numbers for the Helios SR1 (cdt_7_0) and Indigo (HEAD) releases.

I've made an attempt to update the feature versions based on any plugin version number changes after Helios. I need everyone's help to keep the feature numbers up-to-date so please be sure to update the associated feature version as you update the version number of your plugins. This is done in the feature's feature.xml as well as buildsite.xml in org.eclipse.cdt.releng so our update site is up-to-date as well. You can find the org.eclipse.cdt.releng plugin under org.eclipse.cdt/all in CVS.

For changes I've made so far, please see:
