Subject [jira] Created: (MCHANGES-178) Make the url parameter non-required
Date Thu, 01 Oct 2009 09:00:38 GMT
Make the url parameter non-required

                 Key: MCHANGES-178
             Project: Maven 2.x Changes Plugin
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: announcement
    Affects Versions: 2.1
            Reporter: Dennis Lundberg

Currently the url parameter to the AnnouncementMojo is required. This is not suitable for
all projects.

As far as I can tell the url parameter is only used for two things:

# Act as a stand-in value for the introduction parameter, if that is not supplied
# Forwarded to the Velocity template for use there

Our use case is that we have a project that doesn't have a url. We still want to email an
announcement when a new version is released. We are forced to enter a dummy url in our plugin
configuration to get around this.

I'd like to remove the @required annotation from AnnouncementMojo.url. Are there any objections
to this?

Projects already using the plugin will not be affected, because they already have a url specified
in their configuration.
