Subject Re: Maven Enterprise Edition from Overall.ca?

Agree completely. Just thought it was not the world's best job name
for what seems to be a new tool. Eventually all the good words in the
dictionary are taken, so duplication is normal, but it was simply the
Gmail "sponsored link" that made me aware of it. I bet this company is
benefiting nicely from discussions about Apache Maven driving traffic
to their Maven Enterprise Edition tool.

More than one F/OSS tool has been forced to change its name due to
trademark issues so this is just FYI... I can't imagine that would
happen, but stranger things have happened.
