I think I'm finally beginning to understand Maven

After four years I think I'm finally beginning to understand Maven.

Long ago when I started releasing projects with Maven I made a hash of it. I went through guides and tutorials and was able to release to Maven central but I had little understanding of what was going on. This is the downside to convention over configuration, less explicit knowledge about how to do things.

Practically the downside is infrequent code releases as it is too much of a bother to fight Maven.

Years on though I've gained a better understanding of Maven and become comfortable with it. I'll be going back through my old projects and updating them with my better understanding of Maven. And lots of bug fixes.
