Congratulations for being accepted for Gsoc 2012.
I am interested in the project *Mavenize PIG*. Mavenizing PIG would be
important over ant as it's native features for managing dependencies,
reporting, plugins etc.
I hope to go through the PIG project structure to identify how we can
modularize PIG using maven and build it.
Now Maven provides resource plugins - copy plugins etc. Hence all the stuff
that Ant capable of is possible with Maven with it's own features.
Hope to post further details soon.
