Maven redmine plugin

FastConnect uses redmine for its opensource platform to track features/bugs off all its projects. Unfortunately there is no integration with maven as you can find with Jira. Especially it lacks the capacity to retrieve all features/bugs part of a specific Roadmap release.

Toward full release automation

maven-redmine-plugin provides tight integration with maven-changes-plugin (at least the tightest possible) by creating changes.xml file from a redmine roadmap. This allows to create nice changes report in your maven site and to send release announcement email.
Then you can publish a news to your redmine project advertising the new release.

All of this rely on information provided in your pom.xml and can be automatically executed as part of a release by configuring maven-release-plugin.
