Hi; this is the first I've read anywhere about the "install hack".  Where
can I find out more about it?

Guilty as charged in a multi-module build.  Are you saying there's another
way that modules in a multi-module build can share artifacts?  Could you
point me to where this is documented?

To be clear: in a multi-module build, with a root pom, with brand new
version numbers, you're saying the whole build should run just fine when
invoked from the root with "clean verify"?

Just another user trying to do things right,
