I am finding Maven 2 to be many times better than Maven 1 and I have 
been moving in the direction that we were going to use Maven 2 on 
Directory.  I'm not sure what you're looking for for documentation, but 
I've figured out what I've needed from looking at other POM examples, 
notably the ones in Plexus and Maven 2 SVN, and from directly asking 
Brett Maven 2 questions on IRC.  For functionality not yet in Maven 2 I 
have been writing plugins (in Java), which I never did for Maven 1 on 
account of Jelly.

I only have 1 data point and no personal experience with Ivy, but over 
on the Felix project, one user stated coming from the Ivy/Ant setup to 
Maven 2/OSGi and finding "My whole development workflow is light years 
ahead of my previous ant/nano container/ivy environment."
