Bingo, precisely Pei -- Central is phasing out custom artifact repos,
so best to work with the community to upload to Central.

First, I would send an email to their dev list though, ask them if
they are OK with you publishing the jar for them.

Note, I had to do this with the NCAR NetCDF-4-Java library for Tika:


If the community doesn't respond, then you may consider publishing the
Jar as a "fork" under a different namespace in order to play nicely
with the community, and since BSD doesn't prevent that.
