Subject [jira] Commented: (COMMONSSITE-21) commons-parent-6 pom changes
Date Sat, 05 Jan 2008 15:35:34 GMT


Jochen Wiedmann commented on COMMONSSITE-21:

I'd like to note that I do support Dennis' opinion that the maven-remote-resources-plugin
should be used, for the following reasons:

- Commons has a *very* special policy. In fact, I have been release manager for a multitude
  of ASF projects and subprojects and never found the requirements so heavy. It takes a
  real lot of time and work to accomplish this. A good example is the policy to add LICENSE
  and NOTICE files to the javadoc jar files, which I personally find ridiculous, because (thanks
  god) the javadoc files do not even carry a copyright notice. The more we delegate to
  plugins, the better, it only helps.

- Most of the open points could very well be fixed by extending or modifying the
  maven-remote-resources-plugin. A good example are the file names. If they are fixed now,
  why should they not be customizable? If the developers do not want to adhere to
  our requirements, then we may very well subclass the plugin.

- Niall has pointed out, that a consistent behaviour is desirable. That is certainly the
  case. But even a consistent behaviour will require changes at some point. And at that
  point we can also only win by delegating work to a pugin.
