Subject Re: Struts 2.5
Date Wed, 17 Sep 2014 14:25:24 GMT
If you move them into a separate module for 2.5, just don't include it in
the parent's build process (include it only as a special Maven profile).
It's someone is a die-hard hacker and wants to build it themselves, they
can.

PS: When 3.0 comes around, I recommend we split off all plugins into
independent release cycles like Maven plugins. This way we can evolve and
deprecate them independently without waiting for core releases.


Cheers,
Paul
