[GRADLE-2716] Provide support for resolving custom status values with defined rank using latest.[custom] Created: 21/Mar/13 Updated: 03/Sep/13 Resolved: 03/Sep/13
An ivy.xml file may contain arbitrary values for 'status' beyond the built-in 'integration', 'milestone' and 'release'. The resolving build should then be able to define a ranking of status values, so that eg 'snapshot' < 'candidate' < 'release'.
Resolving 'latest.candidate' should then return the highest module version published with either 'candidate' or 'release' status.
