Hi Kirill, 

There was some previous discussion about converting the ant scripts to maven, but the development
community of roller by majority decide not to do so as we (I am not a roller developer but
a roller-tools developer) didn't see any benefit on doing so.

You can read more about this in the following thread:

If you are interesting on improving the build process (or in creating a new project for gsoc)
my suggestion would be to create a guide or a ant script that would make the current svn source
code work in eclipse. A lot of people (including myself) have been asking for an easy way
of supporting eclipse with the current directory structure. The community of developers/hackers
that use eclipse as an IDE find it difficult and painfull to stay up to date with the svn
HEAD code because the directory structure is just not setup in a way that eclipse can easily
understand it. Creating a ant script that a developer can run to create an eclipse friendly
directory would be a very useful tool to stay up to date with the svn head directory structure.

But you probably need to get Dave's agreement before you start working on such a thing.

Subject: Another idea

Good day.

Unfortunately i didn't receive any reply to my previous post, so i may 
that previous idea is uninteresting. So i decided to propose another one.
When i downloaded sources of roller i saw that building and configuring 
of project is not very comfortable.
I think that storing jar's in svn looks not good.
Today many apache projects use maven for building, and i wonder why 
roller doesn't?
I used appfuse and the way in which maven is used there looks great.
So i propose to improve roller build scripts. If this idea is not enough 
for gsoc,
it may be only my issue to roller's community.
