I like the fact that Eclipse has a 'convert to maven project' feature.

Unfortunately, when I used this on an Eclipse plugin project, it did not convert the project to maven, but merely added a pom file.

The project has the following dependencies, which I would have expected these to be converted to maven dependencies.

After running the conversion project, this is the resulting maven pom file - notice no dependencies have been added:

<project xmlns="" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:schemaLocation="">

If this is a plug-in project, you don't just want to convert it into a Maven project anyway. For Maven, the pom.xml is the single truth for dependencies. You want to involve Eclipse Tycho so that the plug-in manifest remains the single truth for your project, or at least as much as it can be.
