Task 1:

The first task consists of two parts. The first one is about introduction of members and the second one is related to the planned integration of maven support to trunk. Since we want to make sure that there are not stoppers for real users we would like to hear your opinion related to quality. Also we encourage you in identification of missing Maven features that you need for your work.

  • introduce yourself and start working with latest builds from maven-dev branch
  • discuss difficulties that you have with builds and file issues
  • finish date: 2008/11/26

Task 1 results - suggested parts for improvement:
