Re: Official Maven Github Actions

Andres Almiray
Cesar,

Maven 4 will include a wrapper script that should take care of this issue.

For Maven 3.x you may use Takari's Maven Wrapper[1] to get similar behavior.

However for those that can't set a wrapper for several reasons (for example
Apache projects do not allow JARs in their repositories those the wrapper
cannot be set before hand).
the a Github Action may be thew way to go.

Cheers,
Andres
