Subject [jira] Closed: (MRELEASE-457) Non sparse-checkout SCM support
Date Thu, 23 Dec 2010 22:52:58 GMT


Mark Struberg closed MRELEASE-457.

    Resolution: Fixed

Grant, I've looked at my patch again and it seems that the solution of passing the child modules
location via the releaseDescriptors checkoutPath property is the least intrusive way. Using
the projectPath would change lot of functionality and would break a few other things as far
as I've seen.

> 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.
