I created a build.xml, and can copy your idea to make a deb. But is it
worth creating a single deb just for these, or do you think a
maven-plugins package with all the plugins assorted and a single
build.xml would be better? I ask this, since we have to repackage the
things anyway, for the source is provided as jars. But this would mean
that if some one plugin's version is bumped up, it would require a
rebuild of the whole thing. So, what is the right way?

I can't give you an authoritative answer, I'm afraid, but I would be a bit
uneasy about combining separate source streams into one source package -
especially as http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/maven/plugins/tags/ shows that
the plugins seem to have independent release cycles.

You definitely need to package each plugin as its own package. As you've already seen they have very independent release cycles and will be released independently.

(And I guess the mavinistas would be horrified - "separation of concerns"
