they're pom-less :-)
m2e lacks native support for polyglot maven (more generally Maven
extensions), this is something I need to discuss with Igor and JVZ at
some point but, according to igor, it will be very hard to implement.
In any case,
a MANIFEST.MF is not a Maven-specific metadata file, so
even with polyglot support, m2e would need to crawl in parent to find
out whether there is a parent pom which defines the folder of the
current plugin project as module... Seems quite intrusive in IDE.
I am not that thrilled by the pom-less things. Indeed it saves a few
files, but it adds a layer of generation that makes the process more
complicated and the integration with tools loess explicit. Moreover, the
cost of having and maintaining a pom file is quite low, so I have
trouble to figure out whether we'd save much effort (or add some more)
in adopting it.
