It's been a while since I rapped at ya, but things have been a little crazy on the Sonatype front. Moreover, we were swamped at JavaOne last week, and this week preparing for the launch of an as-of-yet-unnamed-yet-still-totally-awesome project that we are about to launch. Thought I cannot yet divulge any information - rest assured that it is going to be of great benefit to both the Maven community as a whole, as well as commercial institutions wresting with their ALM and build infrastructure.
Now - important information:
I'm moving the blog over to JimboJW's awesome Meopedia (that's me-o-pedia). The reason? Because it's crazy flexible because it has sweet semantic action.
Note also that the Code Te Ching is also there... but it's been there for a couple months already.
