Maven2 would give us:
- automatic dependency download from ibiblio (remove problems with lgpl libraries we use in tests)
- generation of .project and .classpath for eclipse and other specific IDE tasks (IDEA):
- simpler integration with third party tools (clover, continuos integration)
- standard folder structure: more similar to our sister project "Apache Directory", we can reuse their installer and modules.
- integrated site generation (good thing if we plan to make our release cycles faster)
