>                 Key: DOXIASITETOOLS-149
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven Doxia Sitetools
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Site renderer
>    Affects Versions: 1.6
>            Reporter: Hervé Boutemy
>            Assignee: Hervé Boutemy
>             Fix For: 1.7
> currently, a skin is a jar containing at least {{META-INF/maven/site.vm}}, which is the
Velocity template file
> adding a skin descriptor (as XML with Modello, to be consistent with Maven style) would
permit meta-data definition.
> The first case I see is Doxia Site Tools prerequisites, to have a skin make clear that
it requires a newer version of Doxia Site Tools (which is a dependency of maven-site-plugin
= what end-users see): this would permit newer Doxia Site Tools versions to provide new features
for skins (like DOXIASITETOOLS-150) and skins using these features without fearing failing
because being used in older maven-site-plugin versions
> this would also create a new "skin-model" module that would give us a natural place to
document practices around skins
