>                 Key: MNG-6020
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: core
>    Affects Versions: 3.2.5
>         Environment: Mac OS X
>            Reporter: Archie Cobbs
>            Priority: Minor
> I had a typo in my POM: there was an extra trailing {{</project>}} tag in the XML.
This made the POM not be valid XML.
> Maven did not detect this error. While that may seem like a feature, it's really a bug,
in particular because Maven will also happily deploy this invalid XML file.
> It led to this interesting situation which had us scratching our heads for a while; see for details.
> Recommendation: maven should throw an error if {{pom.xml}} is not valid XML.
