Subject [jira] Commented: (MNG-3690) inheriting properties doesn't work if name of property is too long
Date Wed, 13 Aug 2008 08:52:28 GMT


Joseph Marques commented on MNG-3690:

ok, i finally found some time to get back to this.  when i tried to extract a minimalistic
project hierarchy that reproduced this bug, i didn't encounter the bug anymore.  so, in a
relatively clean setup without many other things going on the poms, things work as intended
and properties are cascaded down to the nested modules as long as the parent info is set properly.
 but there definitely is an issue in one of the projects i use maven for, so i'm going to
continue investigating and will post back when i pinpoint what the issue is (and attached
a project demonstrating it).

it to only be 20, it worked.  i don't know what the limit is, but this was a very sly bug.
