Re: using a "non-standard" directory structure ...

My apologies, and thanks for the link to the maven site.  I have never developed a product
that used Maven, so this was news to me.  I agree with Jörn (thanks for the defense!) in
that it is our choice and we should do what we feel is best (the point of this whole discussion),
but I would like to retract my vote against something that is an accepted standard.  I haven't
seen this structure "in use" for a decade (except legacy products), and I think that src/main/
and src/test/ and src/site grows the tree unnecessarily, but oh well.  I honestly thought
that the standard was progressing away from this, and I don't like it, but I can deal with

Cheers again for the link,

Not everyone is using maven in this world.

The project is free to choose which ever build tool they prefer.

Many Apache projects use maven and its a good tool to make a
release of an Apache project, because many things work more
or less out of the box with the Apache parent pom.
