The packging plugin is now hosted on github and is be renamed to pkg-mvn-plugin to be online with the maven guidelines.
Documentation stays here until we move it to github too.
Welcome to the Maven-Packaging-Plugin wiki!
This project provides a maven plugin for packaging maven projects to different targets. It supports on-the-fly generation of .deb, .rpm, .ipk archives as well as the generation of IzPack-installer.
One of the goal of this plugin was the clean handling of maven dependencies. For the distribution specific packaging targets, the plugin is able to translate the maven dependencies to platform specific (e.g. debian dependencies).
