Maybe something could be changed in Continuum and the POM schema, so that
the POM location relative to the SCM checkout directory could be specified
within the POM.

I found another workaround by building the super-module recursively: Delete
all sub-modules. Change the super module definition and remove the
"--non-recursive" option from the build targets.

By the way, do you know has anybody planned to implement the "checkout by
tag" functionality for ClearCase, so that the Maven release plugin can be

And, at last, one suggestion. I believe the ClearCase integration would be
even better, if the SCM url would contain all necessary information (like
with CVS, SVN, ...). To define the config spec as an external file adds
unnecessary complexity for the users. Anyway, thank you and all Maven /
Continuum developers! You've done a great job. But for a broad acceptance of
Maven, I believe, a simplification of some issues would be helpful.
