Subject [jira] Commented: (MSITE-552) site.xml <custom> parameter and template variables not documented
Date Sat, 12 Feb 2011 14:15:22 GMT


Dennis Lundberg commented on MSITE-552:

Yes the custom element seems to need better documentation, which should be at the Doxia site.

In paragraph 3 in [1] has a link to [2]. That should be enough for the Site Plugin portion
of this issue.

> There's no proper documentation on the Maven site descriptor "custom" tag.
> It's not mentioned in the main documentation [1], and is only mentioned in passing in
[2] - which in turn is not referenced from [1]
> Here are the full details from [2]:
> custom 	DOM 		Custom configuration for use with customized Velocity templates
> The DOM reference above appears to be an instance of Xpp3Dom [3].
> Also, the Doxia code sets various context variables (in DefaultSiteRenderer ?).
> This should all be documented, along with some simple examples, and referenced as necessary
from the Maven site plugin documentation
