What is your time frame maybe? I think once you get some Maven things going I'll give it a
whirl, check it out, examine things from extensibility perspectives etc and see whether I'll
do Ant version of the build system redux or what. One thing I most like about Ant is the ability
to customize it until the cows come home. This sometimes comes in real handy, especially if
we want to provide Ant tasks for others to use and us in the build system. Too, it has the
script tag etc. Anyways, I think it makes more sense to do one first, examine it, and then
if need spend some other time on another alternative for us to pick from, or to go with that
and put effort into feature enhancements and patches etc versus the build system.
