Nuno:

As a user, I would never install software that requires me to
download and install another software in order to compile it.
Dependecies are different as I can run Cocoon without downloading
them but I wouldn't be able to compile cocoon without Maven.  

You are asking people who use cocoon to learn Maven as well? That
doesn't make sense, we're using Cocoon, not Maven. 

- From a community standpoint you're turning people away with an
unreasonable requirement. From a programatic standpoint, I'd wait
until real blocks are out before suggesting moving everything and
asking people to move with us.
