Subject [jira] Created: (MNG-4193) Throw validation error upon multiple repository declarations with the same id

Throw validation error upon multiple repository declarations with the same id
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: MNG-4193
                 URL: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MNG-4193
             Project: Maven 2
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: POM
    Affects Versions: 3.0-alpha-1
            Reporter: Benjamin Bentmann
            Priority: Minor


Within the same POM, we should be more strict with regard to the uniqueness of identifiers.
For instance
{code:xml}
<repositories>
  <repository>
    <id>one</id>
    <url>http://repo1.maven.org/maven2</url>
  </repository>
  <repository>
    <id>one</id>
    <url>http://repository.codehaus.org/</url>
  </repository>
</repositories>
{code}
is currently considered valid. However, this usually results from copy&paste errors and
the missing uniqueness makes it unnecessary complicated to define Maven's behavior during
inheritance or profile injection when we want to merge elements with the same id.

Of course, this extended validation must only apply to local builds and not to the metadata
retrieval.
