Hi @Tom, where do we stand with the Maven Central structure at the moment? Did you reserve
org.wiremock
at some point, or is it up for grabs? I think it would be nice to document the structure for the package group and allow other contributors like @Dirk Bolte to release there

are the secrets for sonatype configured on organizational level + can I "just copy" the publishing configuration from wiremock?

We need to do some work on this. Currently only I have access to the Sonatype keys, which isn’t a great situation.

I think we want to have something on a per package basis. We could also use GitHub packages as the main repository and raise a request to Sonatype to mirror that
^ @Tom WDYT? Maybe it would be the best option if we want to maintain some kind of a permission model

Yeah, if we can get Sonatype to mirror GH that might be a easier to live with than trying to make it work in Nexus

ok - will adapt the publishing part of the extension to push to GH then.

I am exploring the options ATM
@Dirk Bolte @Tom from your points of view, how critical is it to use Maven Central for the extensions and libraries at all? I see some benefits for WireMock Core to simplify the startup, but for the whole ecosystem it's likely to be a pain It's quite easy to synchronize GitHub Packages to Maven Central, but if and only if we have the compliant artifacts including GPG signing & metadata. It is generally a good thing to do but it will definitely require some aux GitHub Actions

Personally, I just need to have a repository to add to maven/gradle. Having it on maven central is pretty convenient and increase acceptance for extensions in general, but adding a custom repo for this extension would definitely work for the time being.

We ought to start using Actions to publish artifacts anyway, so how about we get a service account set up by Sonatype, put the credentials in the wiremock GH org and then any projects we host can set up publishing actions to the
org.wiremock
group?

If the credentials are free-to-use by any maintainer, they can be accidentally leaked or intentionally stolen by any user with Write permissions to GitHub actions, and then used to deploy a malicious version. So we would need to set up some guardrails about usage of these credentials, ideally by making the release pipeline fully protected from tinkering
Also includes all Gradle/Maven plugins that would have access to the environment

I presume there’s some precedent around how to do this? A service account per project?

A service account per project?
Ideally yes

As far as you know do we just submit a JIRA ticket to get supplementary accounts created?
