maven-repo, ivy, javahelper, fosdem


I started a packaging hadoop[1] and tried to use ivy. Thereby a couple of 
questions / difficulties arised.

Ivy spits some errors on me, already asked upstream for help[2], but maybe 
someone of you could also help.

I'm packaging a hadoop dependency, libxmlenc-java[3]. It doesn't come with a 
pom.xml. Is there any automation/template to help me create a pom?
Do you have an example of how to use mh_install* with debhelper? 
Is there still a need for javahelper if I can also use mh_installjar?
Shouldn't javahelper and maven_repo_helper be merged?
Shouldn't there be a policy that all java stuff should also be published to 
Shouldn't there be a policy that all packages should have a "debian" version 
in the debian maven repo?
The ivysettings.xml[4] I built for hadoop seems pretty standard to me and I'd 
propose to include the resolvers part in maven-repo-helper or somewhere alike.

There'll be a Java Devroom at FOSDEM. Should we meet their to discuss Debian-
Java stuff?[5]
