> Currently, we are looking at allowing a user to configure some maven properties specifically
for themselves.
> But what about configuration that is tied specifically to a user?
> Specific things:
> - installation locations (JDKs, repository, plugins - some may be set
> > for site)
> - connections (remote servers, type, username, password keys)
> - password cache
> The present thinking is that some of these settings might be set in the USD.
> This can continue, and while this makes sense for general settings and would work as
an override, it would be better to centralise this configuration and keep it secure (especially
WRT passwords). Maven could prompt a user and update this information (think SSH and known_hosts)
- in the USD the precise location to do that may be difficult and would probably default to
the user directory.
> Later on, a GUI could be used to configure this, and it could be setup for a user during
installation.
> User configuration could be referenced in a POM ${user.foo}, ${maven.repo.local} (rename
as user.repository for consistency), etc.
> Some common settings: server, username, password for scm, site target, proxy, repository
(basic auth), distribution, issue tracker, wiki, etc.
> Now, many of these may be the same, so there should be a default that is used if another
is not given.
