I'm packaging some Java packages for guix https://www.gnu.org/software/guix/, a functional package manager (much like nix).
I would appreciate some assistance for understanding how to
leverage Xmvn in this case.
Guix installs each package into a prefix of it's own, e.g.:
Thus Xmvn shall pick up artifacts and meta-data from all prefixes belonging to the current profile/environment. Each prefix could contain a .../xmvn/configuration.xml and $XDG_DATA_DIRS could be used to get a list of these.
I tried this and it worked different then expected.
I tried to use the "prefixes" (according the the Xmvn configuration reference ) as shown below. But the Xmvn does not even try to access these prefixes. Can somebody explain why, please?
<configuration> <resolverSettings> <prefixes> <prefix>/gnu/store/...-plexus-io</prefix> </prefixes> </resolverSettings> </configuration>
I learned that I need to define <metadataRepositories>,
which worked. But I'm wondering what are the <prefixes> then
used for and how to test whether my set-up is correct.
Thanks in advance for any answer.
