Maven2 really is a whole lot better than maven1. It's *much* faster and
*much* stabler. It's also the currently supported version.

Yes maven can be rather mysterious at times; I suffer the same pain as
you :-). However I can't imagine getting the sort of nice websites we
currently have from any other tool without major effort and complexity -
at which point we'd all have to learn this new, unique and badly
documented system rather than maven. I don't think there's an easy
solution to this problem. Probably best to just improve our
documentation about how to get Maven to work for us..

There is a nice maven manual available for download called "Better
Builds with Maven". See the documentation link on the maven.apache.org
site. 

I don't see why maven1 support is necessary. We do need to deploy to the
maven1 repository, so maven1 users can use the release. But there may be
easier ways of doing that than writing a complete maven1 buildfile. Most
components currently have maven1 builds because they were first
converted over before maven2 existed..

BTW, I see that Mergere.com (home of many maven developers) is now
DevZuz.com. That had me confused for a while..

Cheers,

Simon
