Subject Re: [discuss] Graduate Continuum to its own TLP

I actually would prefer to have an increased focus on maven and maven2
integration.  tbh there are many different continuous integration servers
and the ties with maven could be increased some more and leverage some
really nice features in maven.

I don't really think continuum needs to really try and compete in the shell
script launched builds and tying ourselves to these kinda ideas limits the
fun things that can be done.

with increased maven integration we could integrate build and reporting
tools automatically into the builds, just injecting these kinda reports into
maven2 projects that are under CI.  lots of things possible but increasing
the maven2 support

just my thoughts :)
