".. repository [...] won't be limited to projects hosted at ASF."
In requirement list I can see:
"ASF Repository shall not
Host any artifact in violation of a license, or IPR. "
And if anything was discussed before - above statement reflects well the
temporary decision which was made and all the limitation which
were considered. (temporary in that sense that anything is not written on
So I don't see anything which mentions that artifacts "produced" outside ASF
will be not hosted in ASF repository.
It's just "NO" to "no kosher" artifacts (in sense of license) in that
repository. So it will be our problem if we would like
to consider any constrains for version names (which IMHO are no realistic
in short term (if ever) even inside ASF) .
That's why I strongly believe that any discussion about artifact versioning
simply should not take place.
And we should assume that
version = pchar*
