> I want to declare a new reusable assembly descriptor.  Then, in my parent pom I can reference
that descriptor, and all children projects will be able to do assembly:assembly without specifying
the descriptor.  This actually works halfway, but then the assembly plugin can't find the
descriptor - because it doesn't live inside of the child project.  I was trying to play around
with putting the descriptor in the parent project, but since the packaging has to be "pom"
that of course wouldn't work.
> Unless I misunderstand, the way this currently works, I'd have to declare the descriptor
for each and every child project.  Which would be very unfortunate, since the 3 supplied predefined
descriptors don't meet my needs.
> If there is a way to do this, then the improvement request is to improve the documentation
for this since I couldn't figure it out...
