Subject exotic dependencies and scopes
Date Fri, 28 Dec 2012 13:29:00 GMT
Much as I hate to distract people from the fun of arguing over logging
packages, I have another topic.

Say that you have an item that you want reactor support for -- that
is, you want to produce it over 'here', and consume it over 'there' in
the build.

For this to work, it has to be in the dependency list over there.

This leads to a small puzzle of coordinate selection. The case I'm
looking at is the license-maven-plugin, where I want to improve on its
ability to produce and consume knowledge about the licenses of
components.

Tony's existing work has used type=properties for these files, because
they are, of course, property files. However, there are many
properties files in the world, and only a few contain this license
data.

So, the code uses a convention for classifier.

My question is; would it have been better to use
type=license.properties instead? Are there any reasons to prefer one
approach over the other?
