Subject [jira] (MPIR-256) "About" report generated even though index.apt is available in "generated-site"
Date Wed, 17 Oct 2012 11:52:37 GMT
Andrius Velykis created MPIR-256:

             Summary: "About" report generated even though index.apt is available in "generated-site"
                 Key: MPIR-256
             Project: Maven 2.x Project Info Reports Plugin
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: index
    Affects Versions: 2.5.1
            Reporter: Andrius Velykis

Normally, if there is an apt/index.apt file in the /src/site directory, About report is not
generated, and the following message is displayed: Skipped "About" report, file "index.html"
already exists for the English version.

Expecting the same behaviour, I have a situation, where the index.apt file is generated automatically
(e.g. copied from somewhere) during `pre-site` phase. maven-site-plugin allows specifying
an additional `generatedSiteDirectory` parameter for these files (see

However, in this case, the "About" report is generated and overrides the copied file from
`generatedSiteDirectory` parameter.

I would expect the "About" report to be not generated, if index.apt is available in the `generatedSiteDirectory`.

I have attached a sample project, which uses `antrun` to copy a file to /target/generated-site/apt/index.apt.
When you run `mvn site`, it will still display the default "About" page. As an example that
`generatedSiteDirectory` works, I also copy the same file to index-copy.apt and an index-copy.html
is generated correctly.
