Agreed, it sounds like we need a decision on whether we want

devel/maven33 etc.



>From that ticket, there isn't a huge amount that depends on Maven so the 
consensus seemed to be for devel/maven. If that is the case I'll cancel my bug 
and try to help facilitate that. It would be good to have some goal posts 
agreed though, for where we need to get to for someone to be bold and just 
commit it. I'm new here though, so I'm not sure how this usually works.
