[jira] Created: (COMMONSSITE-24) missing -source.jar bundles in maven repository for many apache commons

ASF GitHub Bot (Jira)
missing -source.jar bundles in maven repository for many apache commons
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: COMMONSSITE-24
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMMONSSITE-24
             Project: Commons All
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Commons Build
            Reporter: nicolas de loof
            Priority: Minor


Following discution on dev list,

Many commons-* artifacts in maven "central" repository have no  -sources.jar bundle, that is VERY usefull for developers as Maven download them and attch to project classpath for debugging.

Those jars can be created from existing source distribution available at http://archives.apache.org
Curt Arnold has created an Ant script to download them and re-package as -source.jars, and including the required legal files (LICENSE & NOTICE).

The only issue is for old releases that used Apache license 1.1. Depending if you consider repackaging source distribution to be a NEW release, it MUST follow ASL 2.0 conventions (NOTICE & LICENSE file, source files HEADER ...) so requires some changes on sources and become useless for debugging purpose (as line numbers will not match !)

[jira] Closed: (COMMONSSITE-24) missing -source.jar bundles in maven repository for many apache commons

ASF GitHub Bot (Jira)

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMMONSSITE-24?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel ]

Henri Yandell closed COMMONSSITE-24.
------------------------------------

    Resolution: Won't Fix

Over time this becomes less of a problem and no one has worked on this (at least on the ticket, I do feel that people have been fixing things on the list in this area but could be mistaken).
