under <repository> and <pluginRepository>
<release> should be <releases>
<snapshot> should be <snapshots>
Current settings.xml example incorrect
I published it, but it goes to http://maven.apache.org/ref/2.0.5-SNAPSHOT/maven-settings (will take an hour to sync).
It's actually correct in the 2.0.4 version: http://maven.apache.org/ref/2.0.4/maven-settings/settings.html
I'm going to add a rule to .htaccess to redirect maven-settings there, as we do for maven-model.
Someone just needs to deploy the site for maven-settings. It was last published over a year ago.
I can confirm that this has been fixed. I just tried building the site for maven-settings using Maven 2.0.4 and the elements are now called "releases" and "snapshots".
pretty sure I already fixed that in modello and it just requires upgrading to the appropriate version.
This has already been updated in SVN. An xdoc must be generated and included in the maven settings site.
