-----------------------------------

Yep, I'd like to know too!

>             Project: Maven Archetype
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Generator
>    Affects Versions: 2.0-alpha-4

> I would like to be able to control which files are placed into the generated project
based on the value of a property that is defined during archetype:generate. For instance,
I forsee the following prompt:
> Define value for groupId: : com.example
> Define value for artifactId: : myproject
> Define value for package:  com.example: :
> Define value for extraSupport: : y
> Based on the value of extraSupport, I want to include (or not include) a file in the
generated project. If the user does not want the extra support, I don't want to clutter up
the generated project with unnecessary files.
> It's all about customization of the project based on what the developer intends to use.
While I could create a whole other archetype, sometimes the changes are so slight that it
would be easier to include/exclude a file.
> Is there a way to control this behavior using the archetype-metadata.xml descriptor?
