I am able to download geoserver source code , build it with maven , create maven eclipse project but when i load the project from /src in the eclipse it does not run. after checking build path i found that M2_REPO structure is not as what the build path is expecting.
Here are my computer details on ubuntu 14.04
java version "1.8.0_121" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_121-b13) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.121-b13, mixed mode)

Tried to build the same thing with lower version (2.10) in windows it worked. Ununtu still does not work
