Description (last modified by dscho) (diff)

We need a Jenkins job to warn about API changes in -SNAPSHOT versions. Most likely, this job should make use of the Animal Sniffer Maven plugin:  http://mojo.codehaus.org/animal-sniffer-maven-plugin/.

the Animal Sniffer job could automatically push branches as appropriate for micro, minor and major version increases to a special namespace (e.g. refs/suggested/) to ease the maintenance burden.

For maximal transparency, the job should be implemented as a shell script in scijava-common's bin/ directory.

This would be great. And probably substantial work. It is work we do not currently have time to do. If accidental SNAPSHOT couplings become a repeated burden, and tooling would help reduce that burden, we will reconsider.
