This guy should use the same Maven as anyone else around the world which 
means all breaking features should be disabled by default (see my 
previous email)..

We are not an operation system nor a company like Apple who can force 
users to upgrade...

If you started with Maven 2 and now you upgrade to Maven 3.3.9 you will 
get a large number of new features and different behaviour compared to 
Maven 2 etc...but there are some parts in Maven 3.X+ which are working 
wronge for a long time and which should keept the same get 
reliable results (from the users perspective)..

Kind regards
