Subject [jira] Created: (MNG-2634) Archiver should be adding "Created-By: Apache Maven _2.0.4_" to the manifest

Archiver should be adding "Created-By: Apache Maven _2.0.4_" to the manifest

                 Key: MNG-2634
             Project: Maven 2
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: maven-archiver
    Affects Versions: 2.0.4
            Reporter: Matthew Beermann

The maven-archiver currently adds the string "Created-By: Apache Maven" to the manifest of
all projects. This is good, but it needs to be more specific - e.g. Apache Maven 2.0.4. This
would have two major benefits:
  1) It would bring it in line with the "Build-Jdk" field, which has values like "1.5.0_09"
  2) It would help in having truly repeatable builds - potentially, you need to know which
version of Maven was used to build an artifact

I'd write the patch myself if I could figure out how to get at the information... it's in
a @component called "runtimeInformation", but how do you access components from a low-level
library like maven-archiver?
