Out of curiosity: why can't you run m3 on debian linux? m3 is java,
you should be able to download it and place it in your path.
I thought everybody who wants to build commons components himself
should be able to install m3 on every plattform with java around. Or
do I miss something?

Maven 3 to build a commons component anyone can still use it in a Maven 2 build. They only
would require Maven 3 if they actually want to build one of our artifacts on their own.
