      Description

      Currently the url parameter to the AnnouncementMojo is required. This is not suitable for all projects.

      As far as I can tell the url parameter is only used for two things:

      1. Act as a stand-in value for the introduction parameter, if that is not supplied
      2. Forwarded to the Velocity template for use there

      Our use case is that we have a project that doesn't have a url. We still want to email an announcement when a new version is released. We are forced to enter a dummy url in our plugin configuration to get around this.

      I'd like to remove the @required annotation from AnnouncementMojo.url. Are there any objections to this?

      Projects already using the plugin will not be affected, because they already have a url specified in their configuration.
