Shall I migrate libxml++ to libxml++@2, or just create libxml++@3?

(Franklin Yu) #1

Now that 3.0 is available, I’m thinking about packaging it. The new major version is not compatible with 2.x series, so it doesn’t make sense to directly upgrade the old formula, otherwise anything depending on it would break. Shall I

  1. rename libxml++ to libxml++@2 before creating a new libxml++, or
  2. keep the current libxml++ as is, and create new libxml++@3 (which looks weird)?

Anyone? Or I’m going to work on it.

It has been available as libxml++3 (the name was taken before migration to the new @ pattern).

A PR would be great. Do what you think is best and we’ll discuss in the PR :+1:t2:
