Subject RE: m2 -- Ready for Prime Time, yet?

Hi Ray,

I'm unable to use m2 for production builds yet. I have problems with the
site and compiler plugins. The site plugin doesn't handle legacy
repositories, and the compiler plugin doesn't handle java dependecies
correctly. Perhaps some of these have been fixed in the latest release.

Additionaly I rely on some home built maven1 plugins that I haven't yet
converted to maven2.

It's been mentioned before but one of the biggest problems with maven2
is the documentation. It can be very frustrating at times.

Subject: m2 -- Ready for Prime Time, yet?

I read Vincent Massol's PPT dated 15 September 2005.  He said, Short
answer: No.

But, that was 5 months ago!  How about now?

I have a major set of J2EE apps that are mostly all in m1, with a few
stragglers in Ant.  I will be going through these, externalizing the
environmental dependencies from inside the app to properties files of
some kind.  So it is tempting to upgrade from m1 to m2 in the process.

What are the risks?  Suicidal? None?  Olympic downhill skiiers only?
Curlers would be comfortable?  ;-)
