> The {{child.inherit.append.path}} attribute introduced with MNG-5951 unfortunately does
not support the use case where the children of the element with the attribute should follow
different inheritance rules. Take a typical configuration for Github, for example (taken from
<http://central.sonatype.org/pages/requirements.html>):
> {noformat}
> <scm>
>   <connection>scm:git:git://github.com/simpligility/ossrh-demo.git</connection>
>   <developerConnection>scm:git:ssh://github.com:simpligility/ossrh-demo.git</developerConnection>
>   <url>http://github.com/simpligility/ossrh-demo/tree/master</url>
> </scm>
> {noformat}
> If the {{ossrh-demo.git}} repository contains a child module called {{some-module}},
then that child’s {{scm/url}} should become {{http://github.com/simpligility/ossrh-demo/tree/master/some-module}}
as per the normal inheritance rules, but both the {{scm/connection}} and {{scm/developerConnection}}
URLs should remain unchanged.
> Unfortunately, this is not possible with {{*child*.inherit.append.path}}, which acts
on all children simultaneously.
> IMHO, this is a conceptual problem. In particular, setting {{child.inherit.append.path}}
on the *root* element to just control a single child ({{project/url}}) feels wrong, as the
attribute is in all likelihood not even located close to the {{<url>}} element it controls.
