thanks for the feedback & recommendations
In fact we already have one keen developer using Maven, and another using CI
(hudson) - 

On the medium/long term goal I would like to see us one day deploying to private
cloud via VMWare's vCloud API 
http://communities.vmware.com/community/developer/forums/vcloudapi
or the like.

Some interesting activity in this area:

Looks like a fun integration project to marry all these together!

thanks,
Fletch.
