Subject MNG-3866: To fix or not to fix?
Date Sun, 30 Nov 2008 00:04:03 GMT

In the light of MNG-3866 [0], Shane and I had a short discussion what 
should be the right behavior during model inheritance for handling 
plugin definitions with different versions. Apparently, that is 
something to discuss in the context of the community ;-), so please comment.

In Maven 2.x, <plugin> sections are merged based on the plugin key which 
consists of groupId:artifactId, i.e. does not contain the plugin version 
(c.f. ModelUtils.mergePluginLists()). This differs from Maven 3.x trunk 
where <plugin> definitions are currently only merged if groupId, 
artifactId and version match (c.f. 

So, what's the proper behaviour?
