Support for packaging Maven-based Java applications

Registered by Thierry Carrez on 2008-07-31

A lot of Java applications use Maven (and associated maven plugins) as their build system. In order to package this software as policy-compliant and buildd-compatible Debian packages, a lot of changes need to be applied to the usual Maven process, and at least basic Maven plugin libraries need to be packaged.

Sprints

Whiteboard

Implemented in the following packages:
- maven-repo-helper
- maven-debian-helper

Those packages are available either in Debian Experimental, pending NEW processing or in my PPA (https://launchpad.net/~ludovicc/+archive/ppa)

ttx - Given how close we are to featurefreeze and how fresh this is in Debian, the idea would be to test it, potentially improving it in Debian and merge it for Karmic+1.
