Subject [jira] (MNG-1958) we need a var that always points to the root directory in multi module builds
Date Fri, 01 Aug 2014 14:45:10 GMT

Jason van Zyl commented on MNG-1958:
------------------------------------

@Robert, possibly. While this is intended for plugins and extensions, I'm not sure what harm
there is in exposing this as it will be immutable for a build. If a project wanted to use
this I'm not sure there's any harm. That said no plans to immediately expose this to MavenProject
as I have no use case for that personally.

> $\{basedir} always points to the local module. There are cases, when having a local relative
repository, when it would be usefull to have a var that always pointed to the root project,
$\{rootdir}.
> In such a case you may want to think of having the names $\{rootdir} $\{moduledir}
