  Unfortunately, no.

  Liferay has several sources:

  [1] Bundled distributions are at
  [2] The Additional Files page at has links for:
      - a war distribution of the portal itself
      - a dependencies collection of jars: portal-kernel, portal-service,
        (which I don't think are needed for Geronimo)
        (which must be deployed first, according to the site, and contains
the ra.xml file which we would need to update for v2.1)
      - manual database population scripts
  [3] Individual liferay components are also listed on sourceforge at

  If you browse the SVN repository at

  you will see build.xml files in the directories, so the answer seems
apparent that they are sticking with ant.

  I hear that. Maven is the only way...period. Whatever I can do to assist
this effort, please do not hesitate to ask. 
  I am by no means a maven guru, but I can certainly hold my own, and I am
willing to do any grunt work by way of testing, or anything else that you
deem appropriate.

  This is good to hear.
  With Geronimo v2.1 being made up almost entirely of plugins now, combined
with the momentum behind OSGi-ifying Geronimo, a solid plugin procedure
needs to be established.
