Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] (OSLCCORE-121) Allow alternative skew resolution algorithms

    [ https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OSLCCORE-121?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=67799#comment-67799 ] 

Nick Crossley commented on OSLCCORE-121:

The risk with the proposal is that the spec will be watered down significantly - a client will not know how a server will resolve skew, and different implementations might resolve it in different ways. In particular, this might make operations with multiple different GC providers very difficult to control.

Nonetheless, having a provider that resolves skew in some manner more meaningful to end users than first found may be more valuable than spec consistency for its own sake.

>            Assignee: Nick Crossley
> In the current draft, a Config Mgmt server MUST provide a version resolution process using a first match in a depth-first search starting at the top of the configuration context, and MAY provide a way to find all matches.
> Neither of these two algorithms necessarily meets client needs. No implementations exist for the All Matches approach.
> The specification is overly precise, and its precision is not useful in this case.
