I guess it's less the build system itself
but the features that come with maven.

I personally love all this reports and
the auto downloading of the libraries
which comes out of the box. Nothing
that cannot be integrated in our build
system ...but it's there for maven

And I know people disagree here ...but
I am also getting fed up with all the
license issues. I don't wanna bring
up the autodownloading thread again but
having something like that in place
would be good IMO.

Sounds excellent! :)
