for the Heroku Plugin I need to use the Git4Idea plugin for the deployment to Heroku, unfortunately its API changed several times, by now I have been able to keep it all in one plugin and handling the changes with Class-checks and different strategies. This doesn't work any longer.
So it is necessary to release different plugins with different API (or rather Git4Idea) version dependencies
#1 what is the best way to determine the correct since-build / until-build versions for the API changes? The commits in the idea-community github repo are not really related to build numbers? (e.g. this one)
#2 the build-number-ranges wiki page is out of date?
#3 what is the best way for the plugin version in dependency of the build-version? Should it just continue to increment so that I have to release 3 plugin version increments to cope for the 3 openapi build versions? Or would it be more sensible to have build numbers of the plugin that correspond to the Idea build-versions and minor numbers for the increments? (like 8.1 , 10.1, 11.1) ? Also with regard of the selection mechanism of the plugin manager.
#4 can I depend on a version of a plugin? The <depends> tag has no version information.
This is my current setup.
