> Support inheritable multiple settings
> -------------------------------------
>                 Key: MNG-6768
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNG-6768
>             Project: Maven
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Settings
>            Reporter: Marco Brandizi
>            Priority: Minor
> 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).
