Cannot build Trunks

                 Key: DIR-196
             Project: Directory
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Emmanuel Lecharny
            Priority: Blocker
         Attachments: build-failure.txt

Again, and I'm pretty sure this is not the last time, the trunks cannot be built...

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.

NB : I'm more than pissed off.
