Subject RE: OpenCMIS release proposal
Date Tue, 11 May 2010 08:34:51 GMT
Hi Gabriele,

I have tried and failed. Maybe it's just my lack of Maven knowledge. An OpenCMIS release does
not strictly follow the Maven pattern. There are several exceptions like fetching documentation
for a HTTP server and bundling specific files from different Maven modules into one release

Personally, I prefer a 500 line build.xml that is relatively easy to understand and to change
to a lot of magic XML fragments scattered across 16 pom.xmls.

But maybe it's just my ignorance. If there is a simple Maven solution, we should go with Maven.

Hey guys,
just a question out of the blue: is the usage of the maven-release- 
plugin [1] been discussed at all?

Having a mvn project, I can hardly see the reason why we should use a  
build.xml to do so.

Stiil, don't want to stop this release going, but I'm definitely  
willing to help out and document the mvn release process for the next  
as using ant for this seems a bit of a stretch.

What do you guys think?
