    Description

      After staging the 1.2.0 RC1 artifacts, I then downloaded the source zip from the Nexus staging repo, unzipped it and ran "mvn clean install -DskipTests" to verify that it would build. I encountered the below error:

      [ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-assembly-plugin:2.5.2:single (make shared resource) on project nifi-assembly: No formats specified in the execution parameters or the assembly descriptor. -> [Help 1]

      After some debugging it was determined that one difference between this build and the previous build that staged the artifacts, is that this build was not within a git repo where as the other one was.

      After running git init, adding all files, and making a commit, then the build passed. Still unclear as to why being in a git repo matters here, although every NAR now tries to use the git info from the buildnumber plugin to filter into the MANIFEST files.
