Subject RE: There is a way to override distributionManagement in Maven
Date Wed, 28 Mar 2012 13:35:08 GMT
Actually, this makes some sense to me.  If you really want to test out your build scripts,
but do not want to make actual changes to the corporate repo, you would want to instead publish
to a temporary area.  You don't actually want to disable the "deploy" but you don't want it
overwriting your current binaries since Java was so awesome as to always create binaries with
a new md5sum (AWESOME feature let me tell you...).  

I would be interested in the outcome of this as well, since at the moment our only way of
setting up a test environment is to create entirely new code repos and update poms.  Of course
code and poms get out of date -- so unexpected "goodness" has the ability to creep up on us
during production builds.

Take a step back and try and explain exactly what the problem is that you think you are trying
to solve.

I have a sneaky feeling you are trying to get functionality similar to staging/promotion available
from the good repository managers (iirc nexus free does not, but nexus pro and artifactory
certainly have the capability, I would need to check archivia, but I suspect it might)

having the production setting enabled by default; After reading the Maven site it seems than
the only way to do this is by using profiles but after some reading on this list it seems
than the are not a good choice (many caveats).
