Subject [jira] Commented: (MNG-2750) Remove the notion of pluginRepositories
Date Tue, 09 Jan 2007 22:06:21 GMT
    [ ] 
Brett Porter commented on MNG-2750:

This would be dependent on other features. It is currently quite useful for only grabbing
snapshots of dependencies and not plugins. Greater control of how a repository is used would
be needed first (and greater control over the versions of plugins you get).

I also think it might be better to go through a deprecation cycle. Deprecated in 2.1, removed
in 2.2, etc.

Perhaps the best thing to do is retain the old functionality for POMs v4.0.0, and it will
just not be available if you change your POM version to 4.1.0 to get Maven 2.1 features.

> I really don't think we need separate repositories for plugins. With the current behavior
where dependencies are specified in plugins, they can only come from a plugin repository which
is sort of useless. I think most people in practice just point their repository and pluginRepository
settings at the same URL.
