I would like to help out in some way; at least in testing things out!
Myself and my friend (who has experience in Java packaging for Debian)
would eventually like to push in some Apache things like Cocoon to
Debian, if possible. Also, I want to see if I can have the privilege
of building the first Lintian clean deb package using maven! :-)
The resources plugin is the first thing I've identified as a
requirement for OpenJMS, but I'll keep a watch for further
requirements. And I need some guidelines on plugin packaging. Would
you like a separate deb for each plugin, as some seem small. Also,
what naming convention is to be used? And can we just build them using
a custom build.xml written for ant?
