Thanks, that clears that up and I can basically ignore them. 

I'm a big maven fan but I don't really see the advantage to having *both* a maven and an ant build in there. Extra work to maintain, etc, and the only benefit is a command line of mvn clean install instead of ant clean build?

Does no harm though I guess.
