Subject [jira] [Created] (MNG-6189) WARN if maven-site-plugin configuration contains reportPlugins element
Date Sun, 19 Mar 2017 14:58:41 GMT
Hervé Boutemy created MNG-6189:

             Summary: WARN if maven-site-plugin configuration contains reportPlugins element
                 Key: MNG-6189
             Project: Maven
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Inheritance and Interpolation, Sites & Reporting
    Affects Versions: 3.5.0-alpha-1
            Reporter: Hervé Boutemy
            Assignee: Hervé Boutemy
             Fix For: 3.5.0-alpha-2

with MNG-4162, a bunch of reporting logic was removed from Maven core.
This was globally successful, but not on one topic: it was expected to remore pom's {{reporting}}
section and replace it with a normal {{reportPlugins}} parameter in maven-site-plugin.
We later discovered that with this normal parameter, we missed one crucial feature: report
plugins inheritance, which would require a new mechanism MSITE-484
Then we reverted our instructions in maven-site-plugin documentation MSITE-647: the new {{reportPlugins}}
parameter is just an implementation detail, but should not be used by end-users, {{reporting}}
section remains the way to configure report plugins MSITE-684

Now adding a warning in Maven core when it detects a {{reportPlugins}} parameter in a maven-site-plugin
is easy to do, will help users come back to normal {{reporting}} configuration, and will permit
future enhancements (we need to finally completely clean-up the situation we created with
this story...)
