[Updated] (MNG-6768) Support inheritable multiple settings

Hudson (Jira)

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNG-6768?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel ]

Marco Brandizi updated MNG-6768:
--------------------------------
    Description:
As far as I know, the --settings option supports just one settings file. Worse, when it is used, user settings in ~/.m2/settings.xml are ignored (not tried, but I suspect global settings are too).

To me, this is rather poor. It would be much better if
 # user and global settings were inherited and possibly overridden by the further settings file.
 # multiple --settings <file> could be specified and a merge of settings could be composed by maven (eg, <profile> blocks would come from multiple files, <properties> would be overridden, considering the order in the command line).

To me, this is wrong and poor. It would be much better if
 # user and global settings were inherited and possibly overridden by the further settings file.
 # multiple --settings <file> could be specified and a merge of settings could be composed by maven (eg, <profile> blocks would come from multiple files, <properties> would be overridden, considering the order in the command line).
