+1000 : I was never very confortable with plexus and lack of documentation
on available components.

+1 for all moves from plexus-utils to apache commons-x equivalents

commons-exec allready did the investigation, but not ready yet for release

No idea what plexus.evaluator provides, but does this relates to commons-el
or commons-jexl ?

+1 : JDO is dead. JPA has many stable implementations now. Which one do you
have in mind ?

If so I'd suggest some enhancements to support storing in SMB "windows

What is the benefict here ? Natural update from existing code is to move to
Struts2. If we have to re-implement the web UI, why not use a higher
abstraction level framework, like apache Wicket ?

Thanks for this exciting proposal. Any chance to see maven-core migration to
Spring also ? ;-)
