If only ...

I've been trying to use it to deploy from my PC to the Nexus snapshot repo.

However, the first problem is that the plugin seems to treat encrypted
passwords as if they were normal passwords.
[Looks like http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MANTTASKS-177 which has
yet to be addressed after 2 years]

That's a blocker as far as I'm concerned.

I did try using plain text password, but that failed with error code
400 - not sure what is going on there.
[Bad password gives 401, so I know it is not that]

So basically no go unless I can find a way to determine the location
of maven home so I can use the real maven.
