      Description

      I'm using <ivy:makepom> to generate pom files for a tarfile. Even though ivy.xml declares the package type as 'tar', the makepom task sets the packaging type to 'jar':

      Input ivy.xml file fragment:

      <info organisation="myorg" module="hello-package" revision="1.0"/>
      <publications>
      <artifact name="hello-package" type="tar" ext="tar"/>
      <artifact name="hello-package" type="pom" ext="pom"/>
      </publications>

      Output pom file fragment:

      <groupId>myorg</groupId>
      <artifactId>hello-package</artifactId>
      <packaging>jar</packaging>
      <version>1.0</version>

      Upon looking in the Ivy source, I found that the value is hardcoded in the method printModuleId in org.apache.ivy.plugins.parser.m2.PomModuleDescriptorWriter class:
      out.println(" <packaging>jar</packaging>");

      I did not see any easy way to fix this because it does not look like the type attribute is part of the module framework.
