Thanks a lot for tackling this transition!

For now I recommended updating the repository on alioth. I made good
progress on the Salsa migration, I'll post more on this later.

The success rate is encouraging. Assuming maven-bundle-plugin works fine
I think the package can be uploaded to unstable.

Did you also add a relocation of the old coordinates to the new ones?

I think setting the user.home property should allow you to change this
directory. gradle-debian-helper does that [1].
