> Allow URLs to be used for installing a file
> -------------------------------------------
>                 Key: MINSTALL-25
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven Install Plugin
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: install:install-file
>            Reporter: Richard S. Hall
> Looking at the source code, it definitely does not appear possible to install a file
from a URL using install:install-file.
> To me, this seems like it would be a useful feature and could be handled uniformly if
file: URLs were supported.
> As it stands right now, if I want to install something into my local repo, I need to
download it and save it somewhere on my computer, then I need to remember where I saved it
and type that path into a maven command to make another copy in my local repository.
> It seems like it would be much more straightforward to just give the URL I want to be
downloaded and installed.
