Subject [jira] [Commented] (MSHARED-362) Support removing default manifest entries with maven-archiver plugin
Date Sat, 02 Jan 2016 21:07:39 GMT


Michael Osipov commented on MSHARED-362:

I don't like the local machine username. At work, you see the uploader username in Nexus anyway.
What if an OSS JAR contains a cryptic name, this won't help anyway.

The reward is fine but since I do the votes and announces, my display name is visible to the
entire community. I can live with that. People don't unzip JARs to read credit information
I cannot even globally override that to add my display name instead of my local username.
The problem is that in my company the username is a generated ID (company-wide personal ID)
and considered as company-only information. I don't want this information to be public, therefore
I avoid to deploy snapshots or releases from work.

I agree to the original request. The issue is that the remaining entries are reproducible
(Maven version, Java version) but not the username. Even if we add {{addDefaultEntries}},
the removal would lose a lot of information, plus Plexus Archiver adds a {{Created-By}} by

maven-archiver should allow the user to remove the default manifest entries, such as "Built-By:"
