Description

We increasingly have trouble with people downloading Maven 3 (as it is the latest and has been out a while) and failing to build GeoTools. Maven 3 is also built into the latest round of IDEs (NetBeans and Eclipse) and cannot be avoided much longer.

Finally Maven 3 is supposed to be faster allowing the build box to consume less resources.

I propose that the build script be updated to support both Maven 2 and 3.
