Maven integration has nothing to do with Maven being an Apache project.
Maven central is the de facto distribution system for Java libraries so
Apache projects have a very convenient way of pushing their releases to
Maven central, but that's it.

Any project can choose to make convenience binaries available for
consumers. However, source releases on are mandatory.

See [1] for more details.
