Subject Re: Migrate to svnpubsub and buildbot - what's possible?
Date Thu, 13 Sep 2012 16:14:06 GMT
I don't know if you guys use maven to publish website.
But we have recently build a maven plugin to publish maven website to
a scm destination.
See documentation here:
The vote for the first version (1.0-beta-1) will end tomorrow.
I currently use it for 2 projects:
* archiva: archiva.apache.org
* directmemory: directmemory.apache.org

It works fine (at least it looks :-)).
NOTE: The plugin takes care of removed files and delete them in the scm.

You can have a look at the sources to see how it's configured or feel
free to ask any questions.
