Subject [jira] Commented: (MNG-4951) Create re-usable component for encrypting passwords
Date Wed, 22 Dec 2010 20:03:57 GMT


Anders Hammar commented on MNG-4951:

Robert, thanks for the heads-up! I'll continue the discussion regarding that plugin somewhere
else more appropriate.

In any case, that plugin proves the point of the enhancement in this jira.

the passwords in settings.xml.
> To create the master password and encrypting the passwords, I could copy the code in
the private org.apache.maven.cli.MavenCli.encryption(...) method, but (as the comment in the
code also suggests) moving the functionality to a re-usable component would be better. It
should then be used by Maven as well as anything else that would do something similar (like
a plugin).
