Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-3487) Local repository location for plugins
Date Thu, 27 Sep 2007 00:53:50 GMT


David Jencks commented on GERONIMO-3487:

um, ok, but including it in the first place is kind of a hack and a released plugin shouldn't
have it but rather the actual expected location.  On the other hand developing a plugin is
incredibly painful without this.

Maybe if you are building normally it should put in the local repo location but if you are
using a release profile it should put in a configured remote repo?

That assumes that the local repository lives in the user's home directory (the
replaces ~ with user.home system property). However, this might not be always be true as Maven
can be configured to use a different directory.

or similar and then the would replace it with an appropriate
value. For example. by default it would assume ~/.m2/repository but the user could specify
a different directory by setting a system property or changing the configuration.
