I'll add that most of the spark developers I know use sbt for day to day development as it can be much faster for incremental compilation and it has several nice features.

You can use the same build commands, but it's well worth setting up a zinc server if you're doing a lot of builds. That will allow incremental scala builds, which speeds up the process significantly.

SPARK-4501 might be of interest too.

Yes, I've built spark successfully, using the same command

mvn -DskipTests clean package

but it built because now I do not work behind a proxy.
