I did package hadoop 2.6 a few years ago if someone wants to continue
the work . That was a naïve attempt to update the solr package, but
the size of the beast dissuaded me to upload it (and I had enough of my
plate at this time with the JDK upgrades).

I fully share Markus' analysis. Packaging these huge projects isn't
viable without more regular, dedicated, contributors. For client side
applications such as Netbeans or Eclipse I tend to think the community
would be better served with flatpak packages (it would be nice to have a
pure Java toolchain generating these packages), and for complex server
side applications a .deb package simply generated by jdeb would be fine.
