Subject Re: Surprise DEPENDENCIES file from a maven plugin
Date Tue, 12 May 2015 05:38:20 GMT
Hi Christopher,

the DEPENDENCIES file is generated by the maven-remote-resources-plugin

Lines 308-323 ...

We have in our parent a special exclusion for the apache-rat-plugin

Lines 979-1002

The handling of the DEPENDENCIES files is already addresses to the 
apache-rat team via

This means in other words that you have to add the configuration for the 
apache-rat-plugin into your project until the RAT-184 has been solved by 
a new release (RAT 0.12)...

and a new ASF release which will be done until the new release of 
apache-rat is out...
