You may have heard some rumours and/or tweetage about Cake and
In particular I'm thinking of two or three things that make sense to
Another thing we may take is the notion of "profiles" or environments
We're still thinking through whether it makes sense for Leiningen to
So I'm excited to welcome them to the team.

this definitely sounds like a good move.
For me the persistent JVM was the main reason to work with cake for a while. It really helped me during development of tests and when I used marginalia.
Just my 2ct.

Great news! I've been hoping this merger would happen some day. When
I shifted over to cake a while back there were two main reasons:
* cleaner and more reliable handling of native library dependencies,
* ability to define makefile like dependency tasks
- really handy for scripting server deployment, logfile processing
tasks, etc. (like with rake)
The persistant JVM is very handy for running these kinds of sub-tasks,
so in my mind they go together. I also found myself using "cake ps"
and "cake killall" fairly often during development, especially when
running various web service daemons in the background.
This will be a great move for the Clojure community. I know at least
for Overtone users it will be nice to unify on a single build tool.

The persistent jvm (and tasks that go with it), nailgun task, contexts

Also, ease of installation. 'gem cake' is infinitely simpler than any
install process I've ran across for leiningen (albeit a little off-
putting). We should at least have leiningen in an apt-get repository,
or an ebuild submitted, or something of that sort.
Some of those may not (or no longer be) differences. The persistent
jvm pulled me away from leiningen too early, before I could learn much

I understand that this is very handy, but it seems to me like it could
I would rather avoid hoisting the conceptual complexity of process
