    Probably not the best to release to JCenter now

    Well, it's probably still a good idea to release updates to JCenter for existing consumers. And for new ones there is already the alternative repo on Space.

    As a side note: you can publish to JCenter only till the end of the month (Feb 28th). Afterwards it will become “read-only”.

    I’d like to disagree here. Given the short timeline, it’s probably better to just push new releases to Central only and make sure consumer migrate.

    Indeed, I don't think you're serving existing consumers well by pretending business is as usual with JCenter

    I agree. Use new versions as a carrot to get people to eagerly move.

    It is still working. And I am not happy with central release process (they are still did not request for my registration request for my university address. kotlin.link repo is a nice substitute and I am using it as a proxy for the Space repo.
    And of coures, I can't push this one to central since kscience domain does not exist. I've bought kscience.space just in case though.

    You're just postponing the inevitable by three weeks

    Maybe. But I have to do breaking change and switch package again to publish to central, so I will wait and see if there are some other ideas.

    Assumes people check this; so many projects get the bits and don’t check until it breaks. I think it is a wise move but don’t think it will have any major impact. Actually need something like gradle to start raising a warning

    Which would assume people update Gradle more often than their libs. 😄 What you actually need is an intentionally broken artifact, so that at least people looking in JCenter or via some plugin for lib updates are getting "notified" 😄
