I’ve recently come across the problem of automating the process closing or opening a redmine project version when releasing a maven project.
I found the JRedmine plugin http://maven-site.nuiton.org/jredmine/maven-jredmine-plugin/ but once I got to rewrite its super pom a bit to fit my company’s needs, I never got it to work when releasing. I filed a bug report and several months afterwards it wasn’t even triaged. Oh well… I’ve been wanting to write a maven plugin for a while now anyway and I saw this nice library to work with. It’s a Java API to wrap the redmine rest API.
I plan to make it available on Maven Central soon.
