Subject Re: [VOTE] Incorporate EPL Ether in Maven Releases
Date Sat, 30 Jul 2011 09:14:39 GMT
I'm in the same boat. I can't in good conscience vote -1 because I am in no position to take
on the task of doing a rewrite.  OTOH, given the things people have said they would really
like to do I am pretty sure this issue is going to keep coming up. For the same reasons as
yours I'm going to have to vote -0.

to get stuck on an old version no one is maintaining. I'm happy to discuss ideas for alternatives.

Maven as its primary consumer.
