So are you discussing which version of Maven to build from source or
which version to target ebuild infrastructure for? Those two don't
necessarily need to be the same and your topic implied the former but
the above talks about the latter. The ebuild infrastructure for Maven
based projects should work just the same regardless of whether the maven
package itself is built from source or not. Our target is of course to
get rid of all binary packages but I consider this thread about asking
about priorities. For ebuild infrastructure targeting 2.x is fine if the
large majority of projects that will start using the work are using 2.x.
Otherwise I think my earlier logic still applies.
