Subject Maven site documentation problem
Date Wed, 07 Dec 2011 15:58:38 GMT
Hello all,

As a sort of public service announcement I would like to point out a problem with the docs

It has this little snippet at the top:


Notice that empty outputDirectory?  Well Maven 2.2.1 appears to ignore it.  Maven 3.0.3 however,
deletes the entire tree.  The entire tree, including your pom.xml and your /src directory.
 Use with extreme caution.

I opened this issue to track the documentation issue:

I'm not sure if the maven-clean-plugin should prevent this sort of thing or not (probably
not).  But the docs should be updated for the next unaware traveler. :)
