Are SpringSource going to standardize on Ivy/Ant or Maven 2 ?
Having been tied too long to simplistic (and now problematic) builds in Eclipse with no real component repository (don't ask!) I now need to roll out internally either Ivy/Ant or Maven.
I need to focus on one or the other and at the moment I've come across Spring Webflow 2 being built with Ivy 2 and Spring Batch being built with Maven 2.
With a move towards OSGI and S2AP we're going to have to use one or the other but which way is SpringSource moving ?
I don't want to start a holy war between Maven and Ivy, but would rather pick whatever SpringSource are going down, as I am on the end of a very slow net connection and don't want to wait hours for a Maven 2 cache to fill up having previously waited for hours for an Ivy 2 cache to do the same ;-)
