      Description

      I've just upgraded to 2.9.1 Release from 2.8.1 specifically to get the fix for https://issuetracker.springsource.com/browse/STS-2297 but it's still removing Spring Nature when I update project configuration via m2eclipse.

      Adding the workaround identified in STS-2997 using maven-eclipse-plugin works but isnt ideal.

      I'm using m2e 0.12 (I cant go to m2e 1.x - tried with STS 2.8.0 and gave up)

        I only implemented the fix for STS-2297 for m2eclipse 1.0 and later. It is not implemented for the legacy version of m2eclipse. Testing and maintaining the two versions of m2eclipse is complicated and time consuming since the two versions are not compatible with each other. For that reason, we are not planning on making changes to the legacy version of m2eclipse support.

        Since there is a workaround (even though not ideal) and this behavior has existed since the beginning of STS, I do not consider this high priority.
