This is true.  Ant for old stuff, the 0.20 branch and behind.  Maven
going forward.  You can point devs at the maven page up on the wiki

do in maven what you used to do in ant table.

You should make the change Daniel.  As you suggest, the rest of us can
review.  Let me add some stuff to the JIRA you just opened.

Thanks for doing this important work.
