Subject [commons-build] The maven sites
Date Thu, 19 Feb 2004 07:31:20 GMT
I've been building the sites for some of the commons components using
Maven and the all-new-and-shiny common build system. Great work on this
everybody! Here are a few issues I have found:

1. Indicator for collapsed menu-items

If you use the common L&F by setting this in a components
there is no visual indicator that let the user know that "Project Info"
and "Project Reports" are actually collapsed and contain other stuff
beneath them. If you remove the line above you get a tiny arrow as an
indicator (at least with xdocs-plugin 1.5). I think we need such an

2. Empty "Project Reports" page

The default setting in commons-build/project.xml is to include no
reports. This still produces a meny-item called "Project Reports" which
contains an empty list of reports. Is it possible to have this menu-item
removed if there are no reports? Or this an issue with Maven? On the
other hand is there any report that should be mandatory?

3. What parts of commons-build/project.xml should not be overridden

There is plenty of useful stuff in commons-build/project.xml. When going
through the project.xml-files of the different components there are a
few parts that show up in the exact same form (more or less) as in
commons-build/project.xml. Here are a few examples that I think should
not need to be in the project.xml of a component:
- url
- organization (also found in project-template/project.xml in sandbox)
- gumpRepositoryId
- repository
- siteAddress
- siteDirectory

Any thoughts?
