Hi Sergio,

libcommons-lang-java contains the old 2.x version, the new 3.x version
is packaged in libcommons-lang3-java and already uses Maven. So removing
the Ant build for Commons Lang will not affect Debian (this isn't true
for all Commons components though).

Some help for the maintenance of the Apache Commons components (or the
other Apache Java projects) would be really welcome (we are ~10 active
developers maintaining 900 packages spanning the whole Java ecosystem).
If you are interested I can show you how updates are done and sponsor
your changes. Commit access and upload rights can also be granted to
those willing to publish directly the new releases to Debian/Ubuntu.

I'd love to get involved. I would require some help at the start, since I do not have to much experience with Debian.

One thing I'd like to work on, is taking care that all Commons Components can be build with Maven at the Debian project. So some pointers on how that works would be really appreciated.
