I'm not realy sure to follow. What's the difference between Juan's reques=
t and what we have already in place for jasper-report-server or
ovirt-engine-jboss-as? We have specs and sources in different
The difference is that we control the source code, we are not doing
any continuous integration of those projects, as we don't control the
source reposiotries, if we did, it would be complicated to manage as
it's split in two repos (one for the code and another for the
specs). That makes it really hard to create a continuous deployment
pipeline as you have to keep track for each source code commit, which
commit of the spec file is the one that can build it. And we don't do
that, so we can't build any point in th esource code, once a
non-backwards compatible change is made to the spec all the previous
code becomes obsolete.
It also affects to the ability to keep a semantic versioning of the
product, as you'll have to manage generating a version from multiple
repositories (and keep the version<->hashes map and the ordering). As
a change on the spec should be reflected on the version of the

I've no strong feelings for existing or proposed solution.
I just think that from a packaging for distribution point of view, the ko=
of separating specs and sources is fine.
The problem is in the continuos integration and build point of
view. If you are not aiming to build countinuously it does not matte.
