> Currently the goal {{changes:announcement-mail}} uses the email address of the first
developer found in the pom as the from address of the announcement email. Very often a project
is released by a developer that is not the first on in the list of developers in the pom --
which results is an announcement email with awron, confusing from address. (Of course one
can change the list of developers for each release, or add a dummy developer "buildmaster"
as the first one in the developer list, but this is not my preferred option).
> The maven1 announcement plugin has a parameter {{from}} which allows to specify a different
from address.
> I suggest to add an optional parameter {{fromAdress}} to the goal {{changes:announcement-mail}}
 of the {{maven-changes-plugin}} such that one
> can specify the sender as follows:
> {noformat}
> <project>
>   ...
>   <build>
>     <plugins>
>       <plugin>
>         <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
>         <artifactId>maven-changes-plugin</artifactId>
>         <configuration>
>             <fromAddress>
>            </fromAddress>
>         </configuration>
>       </plugin>
>     </plugins>
>   </build>
>   ...
> </project>
> {noformat}
>  If the paremter {{fromAdress}}  is given its content is taken as the the sender address
of the announcement mail. If the option is not specified, the fallback is the email address
of the first developer in the POM.
