On this page, please add any little tidbits that help with the versioning, site management, etc., that are not part of other documents.

  1. Automatically versioning features appropriately.

I haven't tried it yet, but in [| bug 125801 Andrew Niefer mentions that

When using ".qualifier", the resulting feature version can take the form of 1.2.3.qualifier_suffix, where qualifier will come from the cvs tag, or date the same as for plugins. suffix will be generated based on the qualifiers of the contained plugins.

Whether or not to append the _suffix to the version is controlled by the property "generateFeatureVersionSuffix" in the builder's build.properties. The default value is false.

I personally feel that generateFeatureVersionSuffix should be the default, but since it isn't, thought I'd document here.

This is important since a feature's qualifier needs to not just change accourding to its own changes, but also needs to reflect the "most changed" plugin it contains.
