Excellent instructions and useful video - many thanks!

One thing I have noticed is that if you run on windows but have your
source and run maven on a remote linux box, and mount the drive and
open the source in eclipse, and you have m2eclipse installed, you're
not able to change the M2_REPO classpath variable (at least, I think
that's the reason).
