Affects Version/s: None
Fix Version/s: 2.0-beta-8
If the POM has utf-8 encoding and you make usage of entities to support extended characters, these characters are no longer encoded as entities in the repository (well, the effect is already visible in target/effective-pom.xml). This is not a rule of general, POMs with packaging "pom" are installed and deployed correctly.
Multi module example. The attached archive contains a parent POM and a POM for a jar. Both UTF-8 encoded POMs contain a developer with a name using an entitiy. Releasing the POMs they are written with the expanded entitiy making the XML invalid.
