Subject [jira] [Commented] (JSPWIKI-738) Dependencies should not be distributed with source archive
Date Sun, 05 Aug 2012 21:07:02 GMT


Florian Holeczek commented on JSPWIKI-738:

Juan Pablo, I have some questions and thoughts on the currently implemented solution:

What is the exact requirement and where is it documented at ASF?
IMO we're dealing with two aspects here:
* (binary) dependencies in the source artifact
* dependency handling in the project

Taking the title, "Dependencies should not be distributed with source archive", as the requirement,
wouldn't it be enough to simply exclude the libs from being added to the ZIP file?

Regarding dependency management: Is there a reason for not leaving the libs under libs and
test/libs in the trunk, branch, etc.? With the current solution, we will have a growing libs
directory on the top level, since we still need all older versions in there in order to be
able to still build older versions.

> As pointed out in the revision of the July 2012 incubation report, JSPWiki ships binary
dependencies in the source archive, which is contrary to Apache principles.
> As we are downloading some dependencies in current trunk, I would take the path of downloading
all needed jars.
