Subject [jira] Created: (MANTTASKS-119) URL Not Appropriate as Remote Repository ID
Date Mon, 22 Sep 2008 22:56:46 GMT
URL Not Appropriate as Remote Repository ID

                 Key: MANTTASKS-119
             Project: Maven 2.x Ant Tasks
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.0.8
         Environment: Windows
            Reporter: Sam Neth
            Priority: Minor

When configuring remote repositories in Maven, the id property is required.  The remoteRepository
tag instead assigns a default id, which was previously "remote", but changed to be the URL
of the repository in SVN revision 586615 for MANTTASKS-78.  This causes builds to break on
Windows, which isn't fond of the ':' character in the resulting maven metadata file names.
 If the URL is to be used in this manner, it should be converted to something Windows-friendly.
 I don't develop on Windows, and I'll be "working around" the problem by providing an id as
should have been done in the first place, so I won't be submitting a patch or waiting anxiously
for a fix, but I felt I should report this.
