Subject Re: release plugin, different executable name ('mvn3')
Date Tue, 14 May 2013 17:01:32 GMT

What about just a simple symlink (mvn --> mvn3) on your own account? you
don't need any system (root) permission, you create it yourself in your
account in one of your folders in your PATH

@Graham: If you remember anything you may have changed, or any tweaking to
this plugin, I'll be very interested in knowing about it.

@Stephen : That's my "backup plan". However, I don't have permissions to
change anything on that machine, and any change would have to be requested
to a different team. This would take some time (bureaucracy can sometimes
be quite slow, hehe). As I'm just doing some tests, I would rather try
different approaches.

well, thank you all. Any tip is welcome.
