Subject [jira] Commented: (COMMONSSITE-21) commons-parent-6 pom changes
Date Fri, 14 Dec 2007 20:11:43 GMT


Dennis Lundberg commented on COMMONSSITE-21:

Sorry I was looking at "jakarta" in another place in the file.

The content of the generated NOTICE file is completely dependent on the metadata that is in
the repository. This is a double-edged sword. Sometimes it's good and sometimes it's bad.
I'll try to explain what happens:

Validator depends on commons-logging-1.0.4 which has this in its pom:

    <name>The Apache Software Foundation</name>

while validator itself inherits this from commons-parent, which inherits from the apache-parent:

    <name>The Apache Software Foundation</name>

The current implementation of the plugin sees these two as different organizations, because
it compares both the organization's name and the url. Looking at it from the point of this
discussion that seems like a bad thing to do, so I'll open an issue for the plugin to see
what others think.
