Subject Re: [jira] [Created] (MNG-6059) Important use cases not covered, as child.inherit.append.path affects all children
Date Thu, 07 Jul 2016 15:55:51 GMT
Wouldn't it be better to re-open MNG-5951? Does not make much sense to
release 3.4 introducing this when there already is a ticket telling us
it does not fit the needs.

> The {{child.inherit.append.path}} attribute introduced with MNG-5951 unfortunately does
not support the use case where the children of the element with the attribute should follow
different inheritance rules. Take a typical configuration for Github, for example (taken from
<http://central.sonatype.org/pages/requirements.html>):

then that child’s {{scm/url}} should become {{http://github.com/simpligility/ossrh-demo/tree/master/some-module}}
as per the normal inheritance rules, but both the {{scm/connection}} and {{scm/developerConnection}}
URLs should remain unchanged.

on the *root* element to just control a single child ({{project/url}}) feels wrong, as the
attribute is in all likelihood not even located close to the {{<url>}} element it controls.
