Subject [jira] Created: (MPH-30) help:describe should accept "cmd" argument
Date Mon, 04 Feb 2008 23:09:57 GMT
help:describe should accept "cmd" argument
------------------------------------------

                 Key: MPH-30
                 URL: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MPH-30
             Project: Maven 2.x Help Plugin
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Dan Fabulich


In a lot of cases, people want help about Maven commands without really knowing exactly what
their plugin's artifactId/groupId is.  Many people at my work are perennially unclear about
the distinction between a lifecycle phase like "compile" and a plugin goal like "compiler:compile".

help:describe should allow the user to specify an arbitrary command with "cmd", they could
then type "mvn help:describe -Dcmd=install" to get information about the install lifecycle
phase, or "mvn help:describe -Dcmd=compiler:compile" to get information about the compiler
plugin's compile goal.
