Subject Re: How-to build *RC3* from source
Date Sun, 06 Jun 2004 01:17:18 GMT
Hi Sean,

There is currently no way to rebuild a set of plugins that was bundled 
with a Maven release unfortunately. Other than that what you've done is 
correct. You can acheckout a specific release of plugin by the tag for 
that plugin's release.

Alternatively, you can use the maven:installer goal on the maven tree to 
build a maven release using the latest plugin *releases* from your CVS 
checkout (it will download the releases rather than build them).

 (Using HEAD, Maven builds and installs 1.4-SNAPSHOT of jnlp which seems to have a problem.)
 How do I check-out the revisions of the files in the "maven-plugins" module that match the
ones used to build RC3?
