This is essentially reopening
JENKINS-2787 (https://issues.jenkins-ci.org/browse/JENKINS-2787). We are in an environment where we do have version ranges and ignoring the arguments for or against version ranges, we like to resolve this issue. I have looked at the patch provided in JENKINS-2787 and have integrated this into the latest 1.450 of jenkins and running this in our CI environment.
What would be required to submit this latest patch to Jenkins and have this promoted?
