The Maven-1 build is still used in a lot of custom projects
I actually still use it to build Jetspeed. Steve runs the Maven-2, so I 
try to work off of Maven-1, that way we don't both have to test with 
both builds. In all honesty I am sick of having two builds

We were planning on removing it after the 2.1 release
If you want to remove it now, I think it should be voted on
It appears that your patch, by changing the directory structures, would 
actually break the Maven-1 builds. Or we would have to adjust the 
Maven-1 build for the new directory structures in the M1 builds and 
plugin. I don't want to volunteer for doing that, prefer to just kill 
the M1 build

We need to vote on the directory restructuring
As far as Im concerned, its also a vote on continuing M1 support

Could you give me an example of where the modules don't match the

We stay current with the latest Dojo official releases
So we just download it from there, and bundle it up ourselves

Im going to need sometime to review all of this, by Monday the latest. 
Im all for making the build simpler and more in line with the "Maven-2 
way", so you have my support on this effort, and we definitely value 
your expertise with Maven-2. We are working on new features in the Maven 
plugin for the database population, and I was dreading having to update 
both Maven-1 and Maven-2 builds.

I just want to make sure that other people in the community also back 
it. Its about time we make that big decision to kill the Maven-1 build.
