The Maven RPM Builder got a few new features. Version 0.3.0 can now:
- Create symbolic links
- Specify pre/post install/remove scripts
- Declare all kinds of dependencies (requires, provides, conflicts, obsoletes)
- And has a much better documentation
And of course a few bugs got fixed as well ;-)

This looks like it could be spectacularly useful. One thing that jumps out at me is I’d want to be able set the snapshot release via parameter as well. I’ll want to auto deploy after building to a dev environment and getting the exact release number of a snapshot build will be awkward otherwise.
I am not sure I fully understand what you want to do. Could you please open an issue with GitHub issues . I guess it can only be a small thing and I would be happy to add it.
This is working well for me so far. We produce dozens of rpms, so I expect this will work it’s way through our other projects. Thanks for a super useful tool.
