Subject Re: Thoughts on issue 697 (Mitigate unpublished dependencies when using Cassandra with Maven)
Date Fri, 09 Apr 2010 13:49:08 GMT
I agree with Gary's comments even though I am certainly on the
pro-maven side of the issue..

if someone cares enough about it, it will get done

if I was using cassandra via a maven build I would have already
contributed the time to get the maven aspects of this in place, its
not a tremendous amount of work...but I am working in ant lands for
the time being so it hasn't been much of a priority

its all volunteer effort (or corporate sponsored effort, whatever the
case may be) so if someone cares enough about doing it, they'll do it.
 From what I have seen the dev's are not particularly motivated to
support maven better so they haven't, that is their prerogative.  They
have done more then some projects in saying they are not adverse to
having it done if someone else does it..:)
