I suspect that Carsten didn't understand what you were saying as this 
sentence, "I don't think that we should only provide Maven artifacts for 
our first release, nothing more." would lead one to believe that you do 
NOT want to ship anything regarding maven 2.

I have no problem with this release as a first step, but I'd hesitate to 
even call it 2.2M1.  OTOH, if I had an idea of what our subsequent 
milestones are this might make more sense to me.
