Re: [tycho-dev] First org.eclipse.tycho version

I think we should promote the first org.eclipse.tycho release and
encourage everybody to switch to it. I don't expect everyone to switch
overnight, but having two functionally identical releases will make the
switch easier to afford for many users. My primary goal here is to have
(hopefully large) existing org.eclipse.tycho userbase that will help us
test new features and bugfixes after the first org.eclipse.tycho release.

This really depends on what we plan to do with the first org.eclipse.tycho release. The way I see it, this will only be a technical release that we will not be promoting to our users. (Why would anyone want to change their build configuration if there is nothing new?) We just create it for troubleshooting purposes, e.g. so that we can verify that there were in fact no functional changes/regressions during the big rename.

Our users will eventually change from the org.sonatype.tycho 0.11
release to the org.eclipse.tycho SNAPSHOT, which should be
0.12.0-SNAPSHOT. I find this more logical and hence less confusing.


Having said this, we should ensure that we produce no more org.sonatype.tycho 0.12.0-SNAPSHOTs. Igor, could you disable the deployment in the CI build and remove org.sonatype.tycho 0.12.0-SNAPSHOT from the snapshot repository?
