Subject Re: Maven builds
Date Sun, 18 Feb 2007 15:58:29 GMT
Just out of curiosity, did you try using Maven for more than  
building? As I see it, the killer application is the development  
environment intergration combined with release management and  
dependency automation. These are the features that I hope will bring  
people to the dark side.

I ended up doing other stuff this weekend. Will give it another try  
the next.
