Subject [jira] Commented: (MCHANGELOG-47) Cannot find .cvspass file. Documentation not up-to-date.

Brad Szabo commented on MCHANGELOG-47:

I agree, this plugin needs some better documentation.

You can create an empty .cvspass file in your home directory to gain anonymous access. The
username must have a delimiter after it

You can also add the Maven snapshot repository to your pom pluginRespositories to download
the latest version.

The snapshot is located at

>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven 2.x Changelog Plugin
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 2.0-beta-1
>         Environment: Maven2 on Windows in Eclipse with CVS (anonymous pserver)
> Maven2 on GenToo in CruiseControl with CVS (anonymous pserver)
>            Reporter: Paul R. Saxman
> I've run into a few issues while using this plugin, which are as follows:
> - When I try to run the Maven 2 changelog plugin in Eclipse or using CruiseControl, I
get an error that the file .cvspass cannot be found.
> - I've found a reference to the .cvspass file on the Maven 1 plugin documentation, but
not in the Maven 2 documentation.
> - The Maven 2 documentation specifies to use the groupId org.apache.maven.plugins for
the plugin, which doesn't exist on ibiblio.  The plugin actually exists at org.codehaus.mojo;
HOWEVER, it is not documented as being part of Mojo at
> - When I follow the Maven 1 instructions to generate the .cvspass file, I get the error
"The plugin 'org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-changelog-plugin' does not exist or no valid version
could be found".
> - Passing in a password (which doesn't really exist since I'm using an anonymous pserver)
using the Maven 2 plugin "password" parameter has no effect, which is consistent with the
documentation.  Is there any way to not bother with a password or to specify an empty password?
