With jessie's netbeans I used to be able to use "open project" and see the "m"
marking by some folders and netbeans handled them just fine as maven projects.
With the current stretch 8.1 netbeans I cannot find any sign at all of
maven-awareness. I also tried experimental's 8.2 today with the same result.
It didn't help to wipe out everything in /.netbeans/8.?/ and there were no
obvious clues in netbeans' var/log/messages.log. Uninstalling Debian's
packaging of netbeans and instead using upstream's 8.2 installer has fixed the
problem for me: now when I open projects it is back to clearly recognizing
them as maven projects.
