Subject Re: GroupId for DayTrader needed.
Date Wed, 19 Jul 2006 04:01:24 GMT
I have already run into problems with path lengths in the 1.1 branch 
with daytrader now we have moved to 1.1.1-SNAPSHOT.  See

Considering the number of developers (and possibly future developers) on 
the windows platform, we should ensure it works.  Even if it means we 
have to shorten the names.  The groupid and artifactIds are just 
identifiers, you can have nice long descriptions in the pom files if you 
like :-)
