Thanks for the clarification.
I had been using the icon mapping file as "the spec" from which to
generate code (unrelated to building the jar artifact) that uses the
contexts and icon names, but from now on will just use the file and
directory names in the icon .tar.gz.
To eliminate some of the mystery in building the jar artifact, I simply:
- copy accessory files (README, AUTHORS, etc) to a project directory
- copy icon files to the project resources directory
- remove copied makefiles
- update pom.xml with new version and updates to AUTHORS, if any
- create jar artifact and upload bundle with maven:
$ mvn source:jar repository:bundle-create
- create an upload ticket on the maven JIRA (issue tracking system)
The copying could be eliminated with some fancy cvs export commands if I
took the time to figure those out.
I would be willing to check my directory structure and the pom.xml file
into the tango project cvs if that would be helpful. (or make it
available for a tango project developer to check in)
