Comment #5 on issue 476 by jsill...@gmail.com: please document how to use
protobuf with maven
This comment is meant to back up Sergei's and Paul's points. I've led the
migration from Ant to Maven within my company and this wouldn't have been
possible without Sergei's fork and improvements to the old plugin branch.
As someone who used to work at Google until recently, it's a bit weird and
sometimes frustrating to see Maven treated as second-class citizen in a lot
of Google Java OSS :-) It's the de facto standard for building and
distributing Java code in the Real World, so I'm all for making this happen.
I would recommend the Google folks to allow reuse of the original code
(which I think should be fine — it should technically be licensed under ASL
2 already), grant formal permission to reuse the com.google maven
coordinates that have been used for the past few years and ultimately put
this plugin under their umbrella, even if it's hosted o Github. I have
open-source projects using protobufs that would benefit from having such a
plugin officially available in Maven central.
