I have studied the ‘Interacting with Maven repositories’ section of the user guide, but the referenced Maven Javadocs are useless. Web searches find other people trying to do the same and similar things, but only with Maven-heavy procedures.
See the release elements for Spring Security and for HyperSQL at http://search.maven.org/remotecontent?filepath=org/acegisecurity/acegi-security/maven-metadata.xml and http://search.maven.org/remotecontent?filepath=org/hsqldb/hsqldb/maven-metadata.xml
I want to regenerate the HyperSQL maven-metadata.xml so that the release reflects our current release. The Maven Mojo that I used to generate what is up there now takes a boolean parameter ‘updateReleaseInfo’, but it doesn’t work.
