Apache Maven is a software project management and comprehension tool. Based on
the concept of a project object model (POM), Maven can manage a project's
build, reporting and documentation from a central piece of information.
If you think you have found a bug, please file an issue in the [Maven Issue Tracker](https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNG).
More information can be found on [Apache Maven Homepage][maven-home].
Questions related to the usage of Maven should be posted on
the [Maven User List][users-list].
Where can I get the latest release?
You can download release source from our [download page][maven-download].
If you are interested in the development of Maven, please consult the
documentation first and afterwards you are welcome to join the developers
mailing list to ask question or discuss new ideas / features / bugs etc.
