Regarding maven-components I counted about 50 dependencies. I omitted
different versions of the same package. Out of those I could identify
the following which have to be debianized, yet:
plexus-* (plexus-utils is in the archives)
I ignored transient dependencies for now, but it seams to be doable.
My worry is still wheter to ship binaries in the source to bootsrap a
first maven 2 version in debian or going to make ant files for the first
