Yes <finalName/> allows you to control the artifact name.

The reason why we've named these directories was that in continuum there
is a mapping between the module name and the repository directory name.

So if you declare in a top level module pom




then continuum will resolve the checkout path for moduleA as

Now at the time i did not take the possibility of using <finalName/>
into account. Advice from the maven guys was module-name=module-location
so that's what i went for.

I suggest that before we decide to go for this approach, someone
experiments with this layout and tests continuum and eclipse-plugin
integration (they are the most picky with module poms) and reports back
before we start another mass rename.

Either way i'm not too bothered at all by a repo structure with "noise".
Maven is there to help you not having to look at the repo structure in
it's totality.
