Subject RE: Incorrect location for downloading plugin pom
Date Mon, 17 Oct 2011 03:20:18 GMT
I found the "cause" of the problem. 

It is caused by missing plugin version in that specific project, plus the strange behavior
in Maven in downloading POM.

I have described in StackOverflow and here is the link.

It seems to me that it can be treated as a bug in Maven.  I have raised a bug in Maven's issue
tracker too.

This has certain superficial resemblances to the following shoot-self-in-foot process.

Step 1: Define a nexus instance. Define a group of public repositories in it.
Step 2: Using settings.xml, make a mirror-of "*" that points to this repository.
Step 3: Add an explicit <repository/> element to a pom pointing to some repository that
is *NOT* in the group.

Result? Completely mysterious missing item errors.

A second possible point of departure is to neglect that pluginRepositories are not the same
as repositories.
