|Re: [technology-pmc] Advice on how to request pre-req dependency for the Maven Embedder|

Hello PMC, The IAM (http://www.eclipse.org/iam) team would like to request pmc approval and guidance for declaring a pre-req dependency on the maven embedder. The maven embedder is a set of libraries that allow the use of maven from a host application (in this case, IAM). The maven embedder is still under development (i.e. not released) so we are asking for a pre-req dependency to be able to use snapshots of current development. Our goal will be to process CQs for the embedder components once they reach the beta or release status, as adviced by the IP team. The maven embedder is part of maven 3.0 and developed at the apache foundation. Its dependencies are either ASL or MIT licensed. The packaging of the embedder components as an eclipse bundle (and feature) is currently done on a non-eclipse project at googlecode (http://q4e.googlecode.com). Another packaging is also available from the m2e project (also outside of eclipse).
Just in case it is not known to everyone: the m2e project is in the Incubation phase now. I don't know the status of their migration, but perhaps some coordination with them would help here...?
