Currently, whenever a child pom inherits from a parent (and doesn't override the relevant settings), both project.url and project.distributionManagement.site.url have the name of the child artifact appended.
It would be nice to be able to have something like
and have this inherited to all child poms in the obvious way.
My usecase for this is that we have a single parent pom for all our projects, with useful settings such as distributionManagement, and I'd like to be able to deploy their sites to a single directory and have Apache generate me a directory listing for all the child projects. However, I curently have no way of releasing the parent project without obliterating the list of child projects.
