It happens that nobody replies. It usually means that there is no big 
interest. So if you feel you have enough compelling reasons, you can 
continue on the proposed path, or else just wait.

It's too early to say you're getting ignored.
And most of all, being ignored is not necessarily a bad thing. It's a 
neural stance, not positive, but not negative either.

Anyway, to get to the point, Maven-built projects do not work natively 
in Gump, and this is an important point. They do generate a gump 
descriptor with a simple ant buildfile, but it's not the real thing.

Krysalis Centipede is a project that does 
what Maven does in a slightly different manner, and is compatible OOTB 
with Gump and Forrest.

I am the initial Centipede developer so I am certainly baised, but IMHO 
for Cocoon it's better ATM, because it's based on Ant and fully 
compatible and integrated with Gump and Forrest.
