      Description

      Currently, this fragile post-processing is needed to make the content in a file generated with -Doutput=... parseable:

      <move overwrite="true" file="$

      {deploy.effective.pom.xml.file}.tmp" tofile="${deploy.effective.pom.xml.file}

      ">
      <filterchain>
      <replaceregex pattern="^(Created by" replace='<!-- \1' />
      <replaceregex pattern="^<.xml .*>(<project>)" replace='--> \1' />
      <replaceregex pattern="^*+$" replace='' />
      </filterchain>
      </move>

      Solution: Either add XML comments in the generation markup, or only output the XML proper to the output file, leaving the text out of it.
