Subject Re: Proposal: Switch to Maven(2)
Date Sat, 31 Dec 2005 10:33:39 GMT
Hello Bruno,

many of the big projects (maven..) have an own subproject/artifact for 
the main documentation, Then some reports doesn't give some useful 
information. Please look at the project reports of the maven site.
And you have to duplicate the scm information to the pom of the 
documentation subproject/artifact. In Tobago we have put the main 
documentation in the root directory of Tobago. Maybe if the 
documentation grows we need a own subproject.

I think it's depend on how much documentation belongs to the subprojects 
of myfaces api, impl, share, sandbox, tomahawk... and how much 
documentation is real for all the projects.

Best Regards
