Subject [jira] Commented: (DIR-196) Cannot build Trunks
Date Fri, 06 Oct 2006 16:35:20 GMT
    [ ] 
Jim Yang commented on DIR-196:

I must agree with Emmanuel. This is why we are not using maven for Penrose. We also feel like
maven is a bit too much to deal.

> At this point, I really think we should *SERIOUSLY* consider switching from a so called
"build system" (Maven 2) to something that may be not genious, but which _simply_ work.
> It's not the first time the build is broken, and I agree that somebody may have made
an error while committing a pom.xml, but it's obviously insane that a simple error cannot
be fixed because we can't figure out what is the origin of the error without checking every
commits for the last modification which has caused the build to fail - if an only if a commmit
is the culprit, because maven is really used to s***t its own pant by downloading new version
of (broken) plugins -.
> I'm really fed up of maven. It's supposed to *help*, noy to make you loosing your time.
And even if the hypothesis of me being a complete idiot - an option which cannot be discarded
-, then maven whould be designed for idiots like me. This is not the case.
> Maven concepts looks like the current build of apache DS : totally broken.
> Let's ditch this piece of shi^h^hoftware out of our path. No more hurdles. Let's use
make, ./configure, or simply ant. Somtheing that works. Thanks.
