There are a couple of "unofficial" Maven2 packages available for Debian.
Firstly Michael Koch's binary package:
This should work out of the box, but is, of course, a binary-only
package (and so not suitable for inclusion in the Debian archive).
There is also what I hope will eventually become the official Maven2
I believe this is nearly finished (and would appreciate feedback on it).
If you install this package you should get a working Maven2 system - and
if it doesn't work I would like to know!
This isn't the same thing as being able to use Maven to build other
Debian packages, such as excalibur. When Maven runs it downloads a
multitude of Jars, which wouldn't be allowed when building a Debian
package. All of these Jars need to be packaged in Debian.
