Subject Re: Maven2 Conversation Status
Date Fri, 21 Jul 2006 15:15:58 GMT
I'll take a peek at the branch this evening.  I'm kind of on vacation so I'm trying to limit
my time 
in front of the keyboard.

Based on this note and the others it sounds like the build is working and that you are suggesting
temporary blackout period when the migration is completed.  During the migration period the
Maven 1 
build will no longer work so we will effectively halt any development in trunk.  Based on
the commit 
log it doesn't really look like there is much going on now anyway so its probably not a huge
  Looks like some folks have left trunk for branches or the sandbox which is unfortunate.

How long do you estimate that the work will take and what happens if its not completed before
vacation?  I'm uncomfortable throwing M1 out if its going to be a three week conversion period.
may have answered this in the thread and if I missed it I apologize.

I'll post back later tonight.
