Subject Re: [DISCUSS] 2.0-M4 Binaries available (rc1) - rc1 is dead

So moving forward is reproducibility of our milestone builds always  
going to be an issue?  I think this is pretty ridiculous that this is  
such a painful process and I understand Matt's frustration.

Does any one know if Maven is using us as a case-study and working  
toward addressing some of our major concerns? If not, do we look  
toward another build solution in the future?
