Brett Porter updated MNG-139:

    Priority: Major  (was: Trivial)

> server definitions should be reusable - review use of repository IDs
> --------------------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: MNG-139
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven 2
>          Issue Type: Task
>          Components: Design, Patterns & Best Practices
>            Reporter: Brett Porter
>             Fix For: 2.x
> currently if multiple projects use the same server for deployment, we are relying on
inheritence to share the definition, or it must be copied. This applies similarly to the SCM
connection and the dist/site management settings.
> It would be a good idea to be able to declare these elements in a deployed artifact.
> It may still be reasonable to do this through inheritence, but there is a chance we'll
hit the need for multiple inheritence (because multiple projects inherit things from different
sources), so we should enumerate the use cases and verify it.
> eg.
>    A   B
>   / \ / \
>  C   D   E
> Where A and B declare two different things that D uses both of, but which C and E desire
only to inherit one of.
> This essentially using composition for some elements instead of inheritence.
