Subject Re: Commit configId to moduleId?
Date Sat, 06 May 2006 17:56:13 GMT
Just to clarify, the actual file extension in the form of a file
extension is only use in a developer's local Maven repository during a
build, and for plugin download files.

It's kind of a semantic distinction, but I believe the repository
logic is that iy uses the "type" specified in the module ID in the
directory name in the repository, so the entries in the repostory are
like group/artifact/version/artifact-version.type/ so there is a
".car/" in the directory name (but not in any file names).

Bottom line, if we want to change anything, we need to change the
standard "type", so for example "geronimo/j2ee-server/1.1/mod" instead
of "geronimo/j2ee-server/1.1/car"

I'm OK with that, but I don't feel strongly that it needs to be done. 
I guess I'm kind of a +/- 0.

Thanks,
   Aaron
