Hi Glenn,

I guess you are referring to this patch you prepared; https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=49881

I did search the archives but couldn't find the previous discussion on this topic.

Maven is a pain to setup, but once configured it is actually easier to use than ant as it gives you 1 step IDE configuration which is a big bonus :-)

So I'm +1 on switching, but we should do this across all projects in XML Graphics, not just FOP. And in my view this should be done after we've completed the current planned release of all projects.

    I think that maven will be embraced as soon as there is a
    volunteer to do the transition.

A few years ago I went through the process of creating a full maven configuration for FOP; however, the group was not ready to make the transition at that time.

I have recently converted another multiple-module internal project to maven from ant, and would be able to repeat the process on fop. However, I don't want to do it unless there is support to switch over.

    on another point, when can we transition to maven? our ant
    configurations are difficult to maintain and understand; we
    should modernize
