I'm really sorry for the trouble you encounter. And we appreciate your 
interest in NPanday.

Though, you can't really compare NPanday and Visual Studio with Maven 
and Eclipse (yet). Allthough NPanday is in use by many, it is far from 
the broad adoption Maven has in the Java space. Hopefully this will not 
stay like it is. That is, what we work for.

Especially the NPanday VS Add-in serves very specific tasks (Project 
import, Reference sync). We hope to engage more users, contributors and 
committers to help us build a better NPanday.

I personally joined the project in late 2010, because I belive this is 
the way to go for building in .NET. But we have still much work to do.

So far, it's been worth it.

As liit already mentioned, we changed the group id to 
org.apache.npanday. This change was nessecary in order to comply with 
apache rules and to get npanday into Maven Central.
