Subject Maven, notes from XtC with James Strachan and Vincent Massol
Date Tue, 20 Aug 2002 23:26:06 GMT

As promised I cornered first Vincent Massol and then James Strachan on 
the subject of Maven and Jelly (though the latter is not as obviously 
compelling to us).  Getting close to them at the way-busier than usual 
eXtreme Tuesday was difficult.  It was a bit like Joseph Conrad's "Heart 
of Darkness" (filmed as Apocalypse Now).

Anyway, it seems Maven is ready for prime time.   My previous assumption 
is that Maven is best for template solutions (Excalibur's various 
sub-projects being a good example).  I was wrong it is just as good for 
single highly customised project builds.  Virtually everyone there left 
with a good impression of Maven and a mental note to use it soon in 
company and open-source solutions ASAP.  I'm going to compare notes with 
some people who have been using it for a while and see what they think. 
  Essentially though, I am left with the impression that we should phase 
it in real soon.

James spent quite a bit of time talking of Jelly.  Way cool, check it
