I think there are really good tutorials on how to use the Plugin SDK, how to create the plugin skeleton etc. There are also some good guildelines (well, currently already obsolete, but still nice) what is the process needed for applying a plugin for plugin exchange, but towards its end I miss a step-by-step guides especially about releasing of the plugin.
What I miss though (couln't find it) is a step by step instructions how to use atlas-release command. I also got some very confusing information about the contrib maven repository. I don't know now - is it mandatory to have an account there or not?
My plugin will be hosted on bitbucket and I would be very grateful for simple instructions: what to put in my pom.xml when I want to release my plugin? What should be the <scm> configuration for git on bitbucket, what should be my <repositories> in pom.xml.
Also, would be useful to explain shortly for example, how to use I guess atlas-mvn to build javadocs or sources.
Yes, I am a newbie in maven who knows Java in general and so far I was able to follow the available instructions, but now I am stuck with not knowing how to release the thing. I am afraid of running the maven release commands just to try things because I know it can cause some sideeffect to my local repo which are maybe hard to rollback (for a newbie).
Any help greatly appreciated!
