Subject [jira] [Commented] (GUMP-116) Promote using html in <description/> fields
Date Sun, 19 Feb 2012 22:12:34 GMT


Konstantin Kolinko commented on GUMP-116:

I think it is not needed.
There is <url> element in a module [1] that links to the official web site of a project.
That should be enough, because the official site is the authoritative source of information
on a project. The site is always maintained better than Gump metadata.

> It would be cool if <description/> fields contained more useful content. For example,
it might make sense to provide links to a wiki page with developer information about debugging
a particular project, or links to additional build functionality a project utilizes outside
of gump (like nightly build download locations). This would mean the <description/>
content should get a prominent place in gump-generated docs, the GOM docs are updated to detail
that one can, in fact, use HTML, and that we promote the practice in some way.
> Thinking of maven POMs, their <description/> and <longDescription/> contents
might need to be extended to have that kind of information relevant for developers. One could
have a <developerInfo/> in addition to those, I dunno. Maybe the maven people have something
plannen already :-D
