Sorry for the confusion, but that's what I meant. I was addressing the use-exact-versions-all-the-time argument. Maven goes too far in that it is taboo to do anything but use specific versions. Cargo, composer, etc do follow the proper approach. Maven w/ version numbers like "[1.2,1.3)" shouldn't be so taboo IMO. The "commit lock files for apps and don't for libs" is also practical.

Ah, OK, we're in agreement then :)
