John raised an issue in JIRA I believe.

There are a whole slew of issues that need to be dealt with but right
now I'm doing the grunt work and being a build monkey to get every last
dependency of m2 and plexus building under continuum. Once that is done
I will start seriously tackling the issue for the alpha-1 release, but
everything working under Continuum is my priority in the short term.

elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come
and sit softly on your shoulder ...
