I’m still reading recently on a couple of blogs that Maven’s documentation is not very good. This is pretty hard to hear, because I rewrote a significant chunk of it at the end of last year 🙂
When I asked the question Why do you Hate Maven? last year, I got some good responses, it led to some changes, and I don’t think most of those arguments hold any more.
I’m hoping the same can happen with the Maven documentation. Do you think it isn’t very good? Is it a preconceived idea from before it was redone? Or is there something seriously wrong with it now? Hard to find information, incomplete, out of date? Is it the main site, or the plugins?
I’m the first to admit that we should have hit the ground running with Maven 2.0, but there has been a definite decision to focus on getting top quality docs together during the betas when all the features are stable. So if there are some lessons to be learned, now would be a great time to do it.
And if you’re going to say you are sick of square, red and grey – I’m with you. It’s time for a change 🙂
