Re: [handly-dev] Maven natures for projects

Hi Vlad,
The patch looks good in and of itself, but I'm not very comfortable with the build-related changes it makes. I have taken a look at a few prominent Eclipse projects such as Platform UI, JDT, and CDT and a general agreement seems to be not to depend on m2e for building the "pom-ified" projects, just as Handly currently does. Our approach has been to use m2e only for "smart editing" of pom.xml files. To be honest, I for myself even don't use it for that purpose. I think that having m2e installed in the Handly developer's IDE should be entirely optional. I'm sorry for not accepting the patch at this time.
Ok. I sent a Gerrit change for this, including some missing config for the target projects (specifying the applicable environments, eliminating Maven warnings about it), but feel free to ignore it.

Hi Vlad,
I wouldn't mind having a Maven nature for the projects in principle, but I actually didn't have any need for that: I just use auto-build and a couple of predefined launch configurations to work with the projects from Eclipse. Of course, Hudson builds are based on Maven, but that's another story.
