Subject [jira] Commented: (MDEPLOY-70) remove copy of plexus-utils' XML encoding support sources
Date Sun, 13 Jan 2008 08:44:57 GMT


Herve Boutemy commented on MDEPLOY-70:

I understand your arguments.
IMHO, users who did not migrate are precisely those who won't be able to lock the plugin version:
they'll say that "Maven doesn't work", and we'll have to convince them that not specifying
plugin version was a bad habit...
On the other hand, having these XML encoding support classes copied in 4 components is not
so hard for me to maintain: 1 line change in 6 months. And I don't think there will be more
change in next months. MSITE-242 has more sources copied (cli, interpolation and introspection):
perhaps these classes are more like a problem.

Really, now that the compromise is tracked in these 4 Jira issues to be sure it's not forgotten,
I think we don't need to hurry: time is our friend.

Personally, I don't think changing prerequisite is a good idea before next release of install,
deploy and release plugins since last releases are a bit old.
For each plugin, when the next release is out, perhaps it will be the good time to look at
this issue.
