Subject [GitHub] accumulo pull request: ACCUMULO-4121 - netbeans
Date Fri, 29 Jan 2016 19:59:36 GMT
Github user ctubbsii commented on the pull request:
    Looking at the changes, I'm reminded why we didn't do this before: a lot of maven plugins
assume that generated files will not appear in a place other than target, or if they do, they
will appear as dotfiles.
    Netbeans has the unfortunate behavior of using configuration files plopped right in the
middle of the source tree, which are not dotfiles. This can cause some very unexpected and
undesirable behavior in some plugins, especially packaging/assembly plugins, which might create
"dirty" artifacts containing these configuration files.
    They might also not get properly ignored by a wide variety of plugins. I say this not
to object, but only to document that we need to pay attention to these files, if they make
it into the source tree, and we need to be extra careful to check that they do not exist in
any of our released artifacts. (which is an easy enough check to do).
    It would be nice if Netbeans allowed putting these files outside the source tree, or if
it wrote them as dotfiles. Perhaps that's an option? If not, I'd encourage Netbeans developers
to poke upstream about doing that in the future.
