Subject [jira] [Updated] (MNG-6189) WARN if maven-site-plugin configuration contains reportPlugins element
Date Sun, 19 Mar 2017 15:12:42 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNG-6189?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Hervé Boutemy updated MNG-6189:
-------------------------------
    Description: 
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 remove pom's {{reporting}}
section and replace it with a normal {{reportPlugins}} parameter in maven-site-plugin configuration.
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 now 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
configuration 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...)
