I have good news for you: that is already available with our new JPP 1.7 
maven2 package.

At JPackage (as well as for RHEL systems) we have already been using the 
  /usr/share/java as a local maven repository and all software that we 
build that is maven based were built using the JARs from there.

That is if you want to build an RPM with your software.

Which is not a bad idea: an RPM is a very handy way to distribute Linux 
software.  When one of us around here at work wants the others to try 
something, we put together a basic RPM so people can 
install/upgrade/uninstall it easily, which has proved to be a big 
incentive for people to try things.

Already done.

I will be uploading the latest maven2 RPMs from Deepak into JPP 1.7 over 
the weekend.  Give it a try on Monday.  I believe there is some 
documentation under 'doc'.  If you need help to use it or has any 
questions, please ask here (in this list).

Done :-)
