Subject [jira] Commented: (POOL-141) Please upload source jars to Maven Central
Date Tue, 26 May 2009 21:05:46 GMT


Mark Thomas commented on POOL-141:

Short version:
This might take a while.

Long version:
Not sure how we can do this for historical releases.

The release process requires that all release artefacts be generated from the src tarball
that was voted on and approved by the appropriate PMC. Since the pool src contains no mechanism
to generate src jars, the requested artefacts can't be generated.

src jars could be generated manually (as a re-packaging of src release) but I'm not sure how
that would then fit with the ASF release policy. Since there are legal liability issues behind
the release process, we need to be sure we get this right.

I'll leave this a couple of days to see if a more experienced commons developer has experience
of doing this in the past. If no-one pipes up, I'll follow up with our legal folks.
