Description

It needs to be possible to patch modules deployed in the field. Such patches should be installed by default (i.e. a prompt should display requesting the user to allow the patch to be installed). In contrast, major and minor updates should only occur when requested by the user.

To enable this, appropriate changes need to be made to the build system. Right now, it does cascading publishing, which is both time intensive and error prone. Instead, the ability to publish individual modules, where all of the dependencies of the module are already published, needs to be enabled.

Furthermore, changes to the repository need to be made. Whenever a major or minor update is contemplated, a new branch must exist. Patches, in contrast, should occur on an existing branch. Patches never occur on the trunk, but they can occur from the trunk.
