Maven publish and archivesBaseName

(Max Schenkelberg) #1

Continuing the discussion from 'maven-publish' and artifactId:

I was also thinking maven publish should default to archivesBaseName for artifactId. I think this is a better default since archivesBaseName defaults to and changing in a multiproject build is very cumbersome. I would think if a developer explicitly decided to override the archive name they want it to be reflected as well when published otherwise why take the time to change the name of the artifact?
