Subject [jira] Commented: (MRELEASE-457) Non sparse-checkout SCM support
Date Thu, 19 Aug 2010 08:32:32 GMT


Benjamin Bentmann commented on MRELEASE-457:

Just to be clear, the URL inheritance is broken by design of POM 4.0.0 (MNG-2006). This is
just another change that can only be safely made for a new model version.

> Some SCMs like GIT, Mercurial, Bazaar, BitKeeper, Darcs, and Monotone doesn't support
sparse checkouts (checkout of a single subdirectory).
> So while doing a mvn release:perform in a sub-module, we will always get the _whole_
project checked out into target/checkout!
> For doing the clean build from this checkout, we have to implement a functionality to
find the right submodule first.
