Hi there!

I think the biggest I've seen was the site generation not working in some
releases. IIRC the RC1 didn't work and we had to go back to beta 10 due
these problem.

The other problem, but that's more an overall felling, is the complexity
that some builds requires. While in Ant is relative simple to express an
intention, in Maven things could get very complex.

But if you say you haven't had any problems, specially after RC1, then I can
fell more comfortably about it ;-)

I dont know how it was used in the past but I can easily say that there 
is very little I can really complain about - at least since rc1. Even 
for complex builds it is relatively easy to set up.

There are painful things about it (project inheritance and overifing 
some plugins behaviours) and we don't use gump so I don't have to worry 
about that. I would be very surprised if there was any major headaches 
at this stage of Mavens evolution though.

Could you give some examples of problems in recent history? And for 
those problems was it easy to find a simple work around?
