This has really been the plan all along. I will maintain the gump
descriptors. However, Gump is not ever going to cut it as a continuous
integration tool for individual projects, because AFAIK that's not its

As far as your previous points about how easy it is to work with gump -
it's not a lot of fun, but its manageable. It's not something I think
the whole team should have to put themselves through. I've made a Maven
plugin that eases this.

The problems using gump are really:
- - mismatches between identifiers that need to be manually resolved.
- - you must generate a descriptor, where it really could read the Maven
one directly.

The gump team know of this, and agree completely. I've given detailed
instructions on how to implement both, but I'm not learning python and
another large codebase to do so.

So, as it stands - the best situation is to use them side by side, as
you've said, and as far as I'm concerned that's what we'll do. Is
everyone ok with this?
