Subject [jira] Commented: (MNG-4112) Set property containing the currently executing maven version.
Date Fri, 27 Aug 2010 12:34:32 GMT


Baptiste MATHUS commented on MNG-4112:

I think this enhancement should really be added, also because of maven3 arriving. 
It would help knowing the used maven version used to build in the future.

For instance, I'm currently trying to debug a maven3/maven2 build problem because of a badly
built plugin (plugin.xml badly encoded, seems like a bug for maven < 2.2.1). And I've a
hard time dichotomizing things to correctly file the corresponding issue.

> It would be helpful to have an easy way to access the current version of maven.  This
might be accomplished by setting a property like "maven.version" during startup that would
be available to the pom and/or to plugins.  This could be used to record what version of maven
was used during the build to facilitate build reproducibility.
