Subject [jira] [Created] (MNG-5926) Allow for comment elements inside POM
Date Tue, 03 Nov 2015 16:21:27 GMT
James Green created MNG-5926:

             Summary: Allow for comment elements inside POM
                 Key: MNG-5926
             Project: Maven
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: POM
            Reporter: James Green
            Priority: Trivial

I have spent hours tracking down why something exists as it does within a company POM. On
multiple occasions.

All because there is no obvious documentation for things like dependencies. Yes, we could
use XML comments but these will not show in the results of any documentation tools.

What I am asking for is a <comment> element to be permitted within a <dependency>,
<exclusion>, and probably a few other areas but those are real immediate areas of need.

This was discussed briefly on the -users mailing list many months ago and was generally met
with approval. I can't remember adding it here though...
