Yes. I'm no real maven user, so I can't contribute experience.

The choice should be based on experience and probably some
testing, if the dependent ports still build and run with the
grand unified maven (which would be 3.3.x).

We try to do evidence-based computer science 8-), but have not found
anyone who had the time/skills to build and run-test the dependent
ports listed in


Can you say something about your time-budget ? If you soon find
the time to test, I would prefer that. Otherwise, maybe it's just time
to jump into the abyss with 3.3.x 8-}
