Is Maven 2 about to be EOL'ed?

In the Maven mailing list, Stephen Connolly has posted a question, should we “declare Maven 2.x as end of life”.

He states:

We have not made a release of Maven 2.x since 2.2.1 which was August 2009. During that period no release manager has stepped up to cut a release. I would argue that we should just therefore just declare Maven 2.x as end of life.

At the time of writing, most votes are agreeing with Stephen implying that the end of Maven 2 may be coming soon.

Have you upgraded to Maven 3, or are you still using Maven 2? Is it a good thing to eol Maven 2? Add your thoughts in the comments below.
