Subject Maven Plugin
Date Thu, 09 Dec 2004 04:08:11 GMT
Over the course of creating several controls, I've created a maven 
beehive plugin which takes care of building, testing, and building 
webapps.  Now that I'm heavily using it for controlhaus I'd like to make 
it available to the public.  I think its very useful and lowers the 
barrier of entry to the public. To start using Beehive I no longer need 
to fool around with build scripts I just add a line to my 
"" that says "beehive.compile.enable=true".

Plugins are distributed through ibiblio or other maven distribution 
sites.  So, once there is a plugin release to install the plugin users 
do something like this to install it:

maven plugin:download -DartifactId=maven-beehive-plugin -DgroupId=beehive -Dversion=1.0

However, the key here is maintenance. As no one in BEA is using maven 
for Beehive it appears that I would be the maintainer.  So two options:

Option 1
This could potentially go into the Beehive SVN somewhere. Then I could 
maintain either through being nominated as a committer or through 
patches. If the latter someone would need to both patch for me and 
deploy the plugin onto ibiblio (deploying takes like 5 minutes).

Option 2
Host at controlhaus. This doesn't exactly seem like a control, which is 
my only problem with this option. The pros are that I already have 
complete infrastructure access :-).

Other options? Thoughts?
