Brett Porter commented on MNG-5102:
-----------------------------------

I've been in greater need of this lately - I'll kick a discussion on the development list

> I am looking for a way to _mixin_ POM fragments into POMs.  Note that this idea is beyond
parent pom inheritance because all projects inherit from a corporate parent pom.  The problem
that I am running into is that the corporate parent pom is turning into an _"everything but
the kitchen sink"_ POM and I'd like to dissect it into POM fragments relevant for individual
modules.
> For example, I would like to have mixins for:
> * Java projects (that include static code analysis plugins, javadoc, etc.)
> * JPA projects (that include DDL generation)
> * Flex projects (that include flexmojos, asdoc, etc.)
> * Scala projects (that include the maven-scala-compiler plugin, scaladoc, etc.)
> * JavaScript projects (that include build plugins like maven-yuicompressor-plugin with
jslint and compress goals)
> Hopefully, you get the idea.  Without the ability to factor pom logic, we are left with
two symptoms:
> # copy/paste duplication
> # complex _"it does it all"_ parent poms (which slow down builds because more plugins
are loaded even though they might not do anything material)
> Note that a project may include multiple mixins as I could have a project that contains
Java code, Scala code, and JavaScript.
> Another idea is that the mixins could be parameterized, so that the ultimate pom can
be customized based on the parameters (like tokens).
> I recall reading about Mixins coming in Maven 3.1, but could not find any such issue
to watch, so am creating one.
