Here are the outstanding design tasks to be resolved. These will form the last major features completed before we go into beta for 2.0 Final.
Once agreed and implemented, these should be converted to apt documents stored in the relevant modules of m2's svn tree, along with documents for the previously taken design decisions. It is important to try and capture reasons things were done for future developers.
Some additional items have not yet had any design done. We need to decide whether they can be done now, or pushed to Maven 2.1.
