Shall we keep maintaining Ant build in Orekit?

Dear Orekit developers and users,

@Vincent and I have been trying to release Orekit 11.3 for a few hours/days and we had a really hard time upgrading the file build.xml used to build Orekit with Ant.

This is a requirement in Orekit release guide, for now.

I was wondering if some of you are still using Ant to build Orekit or if we could stop maintaining this feature.
I think most of us are using Maven instead of Ant.
Ant builds seem to be a bit outdated.

I’ve seen in this topic from last year that at least one user was using Ant. @loganathan, is that still the case ?


I totally agree! Maven is mostly used.
