We have perhaps 30 projects that depend on EMF.
If
- each project specifies a precise 4-part EMF version dependency
Project should simply not do that, and as far as I know, they don't.
- EMF deletes all old versions before creating a new contribution
Then every time EMF re-contributes, the aggregator will fail until all 30 projects have caught up. In the meantime another popular dependency such as GEF may cause further grief.
The constraint of enforcing a build-specific site and/or fully-qualified versions in SimRel contribution files doesn't imply that contributing project have to rebuild nor change anything.
Projects are free to define references to their dependencies as best for them at build-time. It's only in SimRel that fully-qualified versions are recommended for easier tracking of what gets included, not in individual projects.
Basically, I don't understand how this story and the initial Simrel issue are related.
