For some reason I can’t build the current trunk version of Aperture with Maven. There is always an error pointing out that the aperture-assembly-maven-plugin was not available. I’m not a Maven expert, so this may also be a problem on my side, however, the attached patch at least fixes the problem for me.
I think the problem is the following: there are several POMs that use the aperture-assembly-maven-plugin in their build sections, e.g., assembly/required-libs/pom.xml. All these POMs do not, however, declare any version for the plug-in, so the build fails for these POMs. My patch adds a default version for the aperture-assembly-maven-plugin in the top level POM’s pluginManagement section.
