difference between nuxeo-addons-parent and nuxeo-features-parent in pom.xml

Hi, I'm starting developing for nuxeo, and while building and installing some nuxeo's github projects, I've noticed that the parent artifactId is different between projects in the pom.xml. It's often one of those : nuxeo-addons-parent or nuxeo-features-parent.

Can someone explain what is the difference between these artifactIds, and when to use one instead of the other. Are there more parent artifactIds than this 2 ones ?

Thanks in advance for your answer,

It's mostly historical. There's no big difference between them, except that the one in addons has more dependencies, so if you depend on an existing Nuxeo addon then it's simpler to use that one.
