Subject [jira] Commented: (MRELEASE-420) Prepare and Perform should use profile server settings
Date Tue, 03 Mar 2009 20:49:13 GMT


Brill Pappin commented on MRELEASE-420:

It appears the scm password is stored in plain text in the, someone one
unsuspecting could actually check that into a repo that was open to the public.

This is all the more reason that the *correct* way to do it is via the profile server definitions.
