It looks like being Maven- (and therefore Jave-)based, right?

Personally I do not believe in Java being sensible for Plug devices.  As 
always, others might have different opinions, but don't put your hopes 
too high: One of the challenges in embedded hardware like the Plug 
devices is its limited memory.  Even if Maven might fit within the specs 
of the device, in my (little) experience with Java then a majority of 
the memory is tied up for Java use only, and it is highly unlikely for a 
full range of libraries, daemons and helper tools to be all implemented 
in Java :-(

I still, however, encourage you to do exactly same initial steps 
nevertheless.  And I suggest you then try ask the Java team if they 
would be interested in packaging it: 

Generally - also for others following this thread - I suggest look for 
potential packaging volunteers among the various Debian teams - most of 
them listed here: http://wiki.debian.org/Teams
