I am on general@gump, and I've already detailed how I will implement
this in Maven, at length. I don't have time right now, but others are
welcome to try. I don't imagine it will be a difficult change at all and
I can certainly help. I don't believe changes are required in Gump other
than to add a Maven 2 builder that you've already done, so a would be
volunteer need not learn python.

I'm not sure what your plugin is that you refer to? A Maven plugin or a
Gump plugin?

In Maven, plugins are resolved from the repository too, so come in too
late to introduce this. It needs a replacement dependency resolver
installed in Maven, which was what I've proposed.

The modeler build in SVN seems to work just fine under Maven. Yes, the
generated ant scripts are fairly brain dead, but will work for anything
with a simple Maven build. If you need to customise the build with
plugins then they are not mapped into the generated Ant script and it
will need to be maintained by hand.
