Using the @since tag.

Hi guys,

When javadoc'ing classes, I am hoping to be able to use the @since tag,
but how do you maintain this tag when you have a constant progressive
development stream?

We are using the (xp style) version 'head' to represent the current
development stream. Although our current software release version is
3.2, we have not specified that the next version will be 3.2.1 or 3.3 or
even 4. At whatever point a release is made, we will grab a release of
head and depending on how far it has progressed we decide it's version
number (and the development of head continues).

Has anyone else successfully set up a procedure to use the @since tag
with this process? When coding new classes, developers don't know what
release this class will first appear in. Using '@since head' is also
useless, since head is a continuous development stream.

We're currently using VSS (and soon to migrate to SubVersion) as a code
repository. Has anyone successfully devised a method by which to decide
the @since tag when a release is made? (preferably without making a
further 'official' revision to every class file).

Cheers,
Joe.
