I've finally merged the experimental code that tries to make Gump useful for mvn (this is Maven 2.x 8-) built projects from trunk to live. This means that vmgump will be using it and I'd expect a few hickups.

While things worked fine on the Solaris zone this instance has only been building a handful of projects since excalibur-logkit won't build on Java6 and thus brings down the success rate to less than 40%. vmgump will be different.

Basically Gump will now put a proxy (a Restlet based web application) between mvn and the repository and inject its own jars whenever possible. More on this later.

More details on the Gump descriptor side of things can be found here (once the site has been synced, that is).
