I have downloaded the source for this project have and have a number questions/concerns.
Most of the code seems be under the scm directory. ie: http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/maven/scm There is a POM at the highest level, with an artifact ID of maven-scm, which indicates many sub-directories as sub-modules. However, there is one sub-module that confuses me: maven-scm-plugin. You would normally expect the parent for this pom to be the parent in the higher directory. However, this isn't the case. Its parent is maven-plugins which is a different artifact altogether. This really seems to make building and versioning of the entire project confusing. Do you release the maven-scm project or the maven-scm-plugin project? I naturally expected to release the maven-scm project but the maven-scm-plugin stands out in that it doesn't define maven-scm as the parent and it also includes all the maven-scm submodule projects as dependancies by explicitly specifying their version. How are the version numbers of all these dependencies incremented when a new version of the plugin is released? --- Todd Thiessen
