Subject Re: Project Group Notifiers
Date Tue, 24 Oct 2006 22:33:13 GMT

Can we have an element like:


in the pom.xml where the notifiers are being setup defaulting it to 
'false' if none is defined. A value of 'true' implies the notifier is a 
ProjectGroup notifier and all child modules inherit it, 'false' that the 
notifier is project level - or vice versa, whatever makes more sense.

The motivation is to control the level of notifiers and also let 
Continuum to work it out if none was defined.

Jesse -  I know we talked about zero-config and more control - this 
should address both, I think  :-)
