Subject Illegal XML in Maven POM's
Date Fri, 26 Sep 2008 14:02:09 GMT
Hi,

Maven seems to generate illegal XML for its pom's. For example if the  
developers have a special character in there name.

Two examples:

http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/qdox/qdox/1.6/qdox-1.6.pom
http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/org/codehaus/plexus/plexus/1.0.4/ 
plexus-1.0.4.pom

I have run lately a couple of times into problems with this. Maven  
itself seems to be happy with that. Ivy definitely not:

[ivy:retrieve] :::: ERRORS
[ivy:retrieve]  The entity "oslash" was referenced, but not declared.

I had no time to check the Maven Jira if this is a known bug. My  
posting is just for pointing this out. I'm not sure how far Ivy wants  
to go with the Maven warts reverse engineering ;)

- Hans
