Subject [jira] [Closed] (MNG-5854) Maven Installation instructions not working on Mac
Date Tue, 07 Jul 2015 23:47:05 GMT


Nathan Christie closed MNG-5854.
    Resolution: Cannot Reproduce

I unset my M2_HOME variable and it's working fine. As I can't go back to a perfectly clean
state and redo this, I'll assume I made a mistake somewhere in the process.

Thanks for the prompt response!
