Re: [m2e-users] "Permission denied" problem markers on POM

fakerepo is a hack in mavenarchiver (an m2e-wtp dependency), to workaround the fact workspace projects are not resolved to generate class path entries in MANIFEST.MF. See

Feel free to submit a Pull Request with a better implementation :-)

The marker type is "Maven Configuration Problem" so I'm fairly certain that it's coming from m2e.

I just heard this morning from a colleague that this problem is due to permission/umask problems on /tmp/fakerepo ? I've never even heard of that directory until today. I searched through the m2e code but could not find a reference to it.

My team is using multi-user systems with shared Eclipse binaries. As such a static location like /tmp/fakerepo is likely to cause issues. Is there some way to make this location unique per user?
