Help Wanted: Guidance on Maven Package Metadata #1
The roadmap for this repo is currently:
I would really appreciate advice on how to go about finding, reading, and writing License Zero metadata to Maven packages. I've done some Java and Clojure in the past, but it's not fresh in mind.
A few specific questions:
@eduardoejp, the latest here is that the CLI will inventory
Current master reads any
A few open questions:
Apologies for the delayed reply.
Pretty much. It's a safe bet.
I'd say so. It gives both direct and transitive dependencies, so it's a solid solution.
It's better for L0 to have its own file, instead of writing to the POM or another build-tool-specific file.
It's probably safe. Those 2 files seem pretty ubiquitous (with the caveat that README.md is also common, due to GitHub's Markdown rendering).
General Maven is not really my expertise, as I've only dealt with Maven indirectly through Clojure's Leiningen.
I'd advise to recursively check all the POM files.
I'm not familiar with that use-case.
