Subject: [ASSEMBLY-195] import and export of the same namespace for some testcases -PROPOSAL


I propose that ASSEMBLY-195 is Closed with No Action

ASSEMBLY 195 is concerned about testcase contributions which both import and export the same namespace.

The claim is made that this behaviour is not explicitly defined in the Assembly specification and that it could
lead to cyclic dependencies that would cause an error.

However, I think that the Assembly specification is very clear about the meaning of import and export statements
in Section 10.2.1 and there is a specific normative statement - ASM12023 - that indicates that any resolution of an
artifact through an import statement must only be a one-deep search and that searches do not recurse through
multiple levels of Contributions.

As a result, cyclic dependencies of the kind mentioned in this issue are not possible.

The claim that there needs to be a definition of an import/export pair in the Assembly spec is also unnecessary,
since its meaning is well defined by ASM12023, with no ambiguity.

Yours,  Mike.
